Umenyiora out for season

Filed under: Sports — Tags: , , , , — David Kirkpatrick @ 3:38 pm

I almost blogged about this last night with the conceit Giant’s fans probably collectively had their hearts in their mouths.

Well, the other shoe did drop and Osi is done for the season. A thinned D-line is now essentially depleted.

From the link:

Umenyiora was hurt in the second quarter of Saturday’s preseason game against the New York Jets, but early indications were that there was no ligament damage.

However, an MRI Sunday found a torn lateral meniscus, Dr. Russell Warren told the team. The two-time Pro Bowl choice will have surgery Tuesday and be sidelined for the season.

The loss is a major one for the Super Bowl champions in the wake of the retirement of seven-time Pro Bowl defensive end Michael Strahan a few months ago.

  1. As an Australia-based Giants fan, I found your blog on google and read a few of your other Giants posts.
    I just added you to my Google News Reader. Keep up the good work. Look forward to reading more from you in the future.
