Prince Inactive for Giants; Hosley to Start; Austin to Debut
John Fennelly , Lead Writer
Giants CB Prince Amukamara will be inactive vs Tampa Bay this afternoon. Rookie Jayron Hosley will start in his place instead of veteran Michael Coe. This is a great move by the Giants. Get that speed out on the field.
WR Hakeem Nicks (foot) is active and will start. Same for C David Baas (hip).
Other inactives: WR Jerrel Jernigan, LB Keith Rivers, RB Da’Rel Scott, TE Adrien Robinson, DE Adewale Ojomo and as usual – OT James Brewer.
DT Marvin Austin will make his Giants debut today. He has not played in a meaningful game since Dec of 2009 when he was at UNC. For those interested, he wears #96.
Bucs’ OT Jeremy Trueblood is inactive today. Demar Dotson will start in his place. This should hopefully assist the Giants’ pass rush in generating some pressure.
