Osi Umenyiora Injury Update: Giants DE Could Reportedly Return In 'Weeks'

New York Giants defensive end Osi Umenyiora injured his ankle during the Giants' blowout loss to the New Orleans Saints on Nov. 28. He has missed the last four games since the injury occurred.

Umenyiora did not have surgery on the ankle and will return to the practice field to test it later this week. A report says that Umenyiora will need more weeks before he can return.

"He's still not ready to play," the source said. "In the end, he may try to play. But he needs at least a couple more weeks to properly heal." (via New York Daily News)

The Giants held out hope that Umenyiora could return at some point this season and did not place him on the injured reserve list. Even if he can return for the Giants before the end of the season, Umenyiora might still need surgery after the season is over.
