The New York Giants have released its roster for Wednesday night's preseason finale against the New England Patriots, and as expected defensive ends Osi Umenyiora, Justin Tuck and Jason Pierre-Paul and linebacker Mathia Kiwanuka will not play, reports Mike Garafolo of the Star-Ledger. The only surprise was that cornerback Bruce Johnson is also out.
