Amukamara fined by league
By Matt Ehalt
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Giants cornerback Prince Amukamara was fined $15,750 for unnecessary roughness in last Sunday's win over the Saints, according to an NFL spokesperson.
In the fourth quarter of the 52-27 Giants victory, Amukamara was flagged for a horse-collar tackle of Saints running back Pierre Thomas. New Orleans wasn't able to use that extra 15 yards to help them, as Stevie Brown threw an interception shortly thereafter.
Amukamara will miss Sunday's game against the Falcons, as he injured his hamstring in the win over the Saints.
