Osi Umenyiora “out a while” with ankle injury

A whole lot is going wrong for the New York Giants right now, and we can add Osi Umenyiora’s injury to the list.

Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News reports that a source said Umenyiora is going to be “out a while” with an ankle injury.

Umenyiora suffered a sprained ankle in the second quarter of the Monday night loss to the Saints, and it didn’t initially appear to be serious. But during the game the Giants changed his status from probable to return to out for the rest of the game. And now he’s apparently going to be out for quite a bit longer.

Although injuries have been a problem this season, Umenyiora has played in eight games this year and is second on the team with seven sacks. His absence will be another major hit for a team that has spent most of the season in first place but now has an uphill battle to get to the playoffs.

    At least they only have to play the Packers this week.

    Just a ridiculous season, injury-wise, for the Giants. The only positive is that Coughlin has no choice but to play rookies and get them some much-needed game experience. See you next year, guys.

    In other news Justin Tucks face mask is really cool! Only question is why does he need it to do nothing !

    I mean I like Osi, but the last Cowboys QB he sacked was Drew Bledsoe. Then again Tuck hasn’t had one since ’08.

    Does he still play for the Giants?

    Osi wants his money, so of course he’s gonna bi*** out when he feels things are sliding. It’s all business to players like him. Reese should have traded his butt for some Lb help or some picks. Maybe next year…
