Giants cornerback Prince Amukamara suffered a torn right biceps in the first half of Monday night's 40-24 loss to the Colts and will require season-ending surgery.

"We've lost a player or two in each game, it seems like. That's not a good one," Giants coach Tom Coughlin said. "Prince was playing well. He did a very nice job tonight. That was a blow to lose him."

Amukamara was enjoying his best NFL season since joining the Giants in 2011 as a first-round draft pick. He had three interceptions through seven games, a career high. He also had 42 tackles and 11 passes defensed.

Amukamara is the fourth Giants cornerback lost to injury. The others are Walter Thurmond, Trumaine McBride and Travis Howard, all of whom are on season-ending injured reserve. The Giants replaced Amukamara with Zack Bowman on Monday night.

The Giants had hoped to use Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, who had a lower back injury, sparingly against the Colts. But once Amukamara went out, Rodgers-Cromartie stayed in the lineup the rest of the game.

"Once he went down, I told myself we already had Zack in and we can't do it with nobody else, so I just have to fight through it," Rodgers-Cromartie said.
