Giants defensive end Osi Umenyiora had arthroscopic surgery on his right knee this morning, a procedure that is expected to sideline him for three-four weeks.

“It is a simple debridement,” said Ronnie Barnes, the team’s Vice President of Medical Services. The procedure was performed by team physician Dr. Russell Warren at the Hospital for Special Surgery in Manhattan.

 

This is the procedure we all saw coming.  Give the Giants credit for seeing this one coming and not overpaying him when he held out. Osi said of the situation:

 

“It was better to do it now as opposed to mid-season. It was going to have to be done, the only question was when. If I’m going to miss a little while, I would prefer it be now than at the crucial part of our season. It’s the best decision for the team and myself.”
