Giants’ Osi Umenyiora Out 3-4 Weeks

Osi Umenyiora, the Giants holdout who rejoined practice this week, underwent arthroscopic surgery on his troublesome right knee today.  He’s expected to be sidelined three-four weeks.

This is even more bad news for the Giants during a very difficult preseason.

The knee has been the issue that Osi has been using to no participate in practice thus far this preseason. Osi’s first diagnosis was by an Atlanta based doctor weeks ago that said it would not require surgery but after a seconded opinion by team doctors it was decided surgery was the best option.

This is another black eye for the Giants this preseason. They finally get their holdout Pro-Bowl D-end to practice and they find out that the knee injury holding him out was legit. Now they are going to lose him for at least the first two games of the year. This is just the cherry on top of the massive pile of bad decisions that the Giants have made in the few short weeks after the lockout.

From losing guys like Kevin Boss and Steve Smith, to cutting anything resembling a offensive line - the team is in shambles. The Giants need to get Eli to be that leader they say he is and start inspiring the troops that are left, otherwise this is going to be a long season for Giant fans.
