New York Giants cornerback Amani Oruwariye left the team facility in an ambulance Wednesday after being carted off the practice field.

Reporters on the scene said Oruwariye was loaded onto a backboard after getting hurt during a special teams drill.

The exact nature of his injury is unknown.

Oruwariye, 27, is a member of the Giants’ practice squad. He signed a one-year deal with New York in the offseason.

The 2019 fifth-round pick played his first four seasons with the Detroit Lions, recording nine interceptions and 173 tackles in 53 games (36 starts) from 2019-22.
