The sudden surgery of Giants defensive end Osi Umenyiora was bound to raise a few eyebrows in New York after his recent contract standoff.
Don’t be surprised if Umenyiora’s recovery and return to the team becomes a contentious issue. Giants.com says Umenyiora will miss 3-4 weeks with arthroscopic surgery. That timeline was in the headline of the Giants’ email to media on the topic.
It’s interesting the Giants felt the need to immediately put that information out to the public. It’s even more interesting after ESPN’s Adam Schefter wrote the following:
“A person close to Umenyiora says ‘it could be 4-6 weeks or longer.”‘
Settle in, Giants fans. (And beat writers.) This could take a while.
