  • Amani Oruwariye: Suffers practice injury

    Oruwariye (neck) suffered an injury during practice Wednesday, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

    Oruwariye -- who is a member of the Giants' practice squad -- was taken to a hospital after suffering a neck injury but was later released after the results of the evaluation and testing were negative. The 27-year-old has already been cleared to return to the team's facility though it's unknown how long he'll spend on the sideline.

  • Giants' Amani Oruwariye: Finds new home

    Oruwariye signed a contract with the Giants on Thursday, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports.

    Oruwariye will get a new opportunity in New York after struggling to maintain a steady role in Detroit. The 27-year-old recorded 44 tackles (36 solo) and three passes defended in 2022, which were both the lowest totals he's posted in those categories since his rookie campaign in 2019. His addition will bolster the Giants' depth at cornerback.

  • Lions' Amani Oruwariye: Disappointing 2022 campaign

    Oruwariye totaled 44 tackles, three pass breakups and one fumble recovery over 14 games in 2022.

    Oruwariye opened the season as a clear starter on the outside, but he became a much smaller part of the cornerback rotation after Detroit's midseason firing of its defensive backs coach. He ultimately topped 50 percent of the defensive snaps twice over the final nine games of the year while finishing it with three-year lows in practically every statistical category. Now entering the free-agent market at the end of the league year, Oruwariye may need to fight for a depth role somewhere other than Detroit in 2023.

  • Lions' Amani Oruwariye: Healthy scratch Sunday

    Oruwariye (coach's decision) is inactive Sunday against the Patriots.

    Oruwariye struggled last Sunday against the Seahawks, which may have led to this decision. Although who will step up to start opposite of Jeff Okudah is unclear, Will Harris and Mike Hughes are both likely candidates.

  • Lions' Amani Oruwariye: Logs full practice

    Oruwariye (back) was a full participant during Thursday's practice.

    Oruwariye was sidelined during Detroit's 36-27 victory over the Commanders with a back injury, but his ability to practice in full Thursday suggests he's moved past the issue. In the team's season opener against Philadelphia, the 6-foot-2 cornerback tallied four tackles and one pass defensed. Expect Oruwariye to reclaim his starting spot at cornerback during Sunday's NFC North clash against the Vikings.

  • Lions' Amani Oruwariye: Out for Week 2

    Oruwariye (back) is inactive Sunday against the Commanders.

    Oruwariye was unable to practice Friday after being limited Thursday with the injury. In his absence, Will Harris and Mike Hughes will be looking at increased opportunity.

  • Lions' Amani Oruwariye: Questionable for Week 2

    Oruwariye (back) is questionable for Sunday's contest against the Commanders.

    Oruwariye landed on the injury report Thursday as a limited participant and didn't practice Friday, but he still has a shot to play in Week 2. If he's unable to suit up, Mike Hughes and Will Harris would be likely candidates for increased snaps versus Washington.

  • Lions' Amani Oruwariye: Limited in practice Thursday

    Oruwariye (back) was listed as a limited participant on the Lions' injury report Thursday.

    Oruwariye picked up an unspecified back issue after not being listed with any injuries on Detroit's practice report Wednesday. The 26-year-old appeared to be working through some lower-back tightness, as he was spotted stretching during Thursday's sessions, Justin Rogers of The Detroit News reports. If Oruwairye, who recorded four tackles and one pass defended during his start in Week 1, is ultimately unable to suit up this Sunday, then cornerbacks Mike Hughes, Will Harris and Bobby Price figure to log increased usage versus the Commanders.
