New York Giants cornerback Prince Amukamara returned to practice Friday. Amukamara had not been practicing this week after suffering a concussion in a collision with a teammate in the season opener. The two Giants players came in to tackle a Dallas Cowboys wide receiver from different sides. The receiver ducked and the Giants players collided.

That obviously means that doctors have cleared him, otherwise given the league’s stricter stance on concussion protocols he wouldn’t be playing. That would indicated that he would start Sunday against the Denver Broncos and Peyton Manning in the Manning Bowl.

The Giants will need all the help in the secondary as they can get as they try to control Peyton Manning who had an incredible season opener. Last week he tore apart the Baltimore Ravens defense with 462 yards passing and seven touchdowns. The Giants held Tony Romo relatively in check with 263 yards passing on 36 attempts and an interception.
