Source: Giants DE Umenyiora Out 3-4 Weeks

10 Forced Fumbles In ’10

Good thing the Giants drafted Jason Pierre-Paul last year.

Giants sack artist Osi Umenyiora underwent arthroscopic surgery on his knee this morning according to Mike Garafolo of the Newark Star-Ledger.

The pass-rushing menace is likely to be sidelined 3-4 weeks.  Coach Tom Coughlin said,  “Hopefully it’ll take less time than the other range, the other extent.”

It’s not too big of a deal for a team like the Giants, who have quality players (Pierre-Paul, Kiwanuka, Tuck) to fill Osi’s shoes during his absence.

Update: A person close to Osi says “it could be 4-6 weeks or longer.”
