Defensive end Osi Umenyiora will have season-ending surgery on his injured left knee Tuesday.

Umenyiora was hurt in the second quarter of Saturday's preseason game against the New York Jets.

Umenyiora started all 16 games last season and had 52 tackles and a team-high 13 sacks. He added seven tackles in the Giants' playoff run to the Super Bowl.

With Umenyiora out, the Giants have to consider moving strongside linebacker Mathias Kiwanuka back to defensive end. He was switched to linebacker last year so the team could put its best 11 players on the field.

I hope not, Strahan retired after winning the SB. The only way to go out. I can't see the Giants winning again this year, especially with OSi out.

NFL.com is reporting that the Giants have contacted Strahan and are trying to lure him out of retirement.

I just watched the hit on NFL total access and boy did it look painful. His leg got trapped by falling players and bent the wrong way. Made me wince. pale

JT say's he's going to be ready for the season.

i just watch the video on NFL.com and you're right that looked nasty. Your knee's definately not meant to bend that way. Hope he does get in for the season opener otherwise there's going to be some disappointed Redskins fans

I hate to see those injuries, but am amazed that the player can almost always limp off after your lg is bent totally the wrong way. The human body is amazing.

NFL Total access reported that Strahan will not return to the Giants and will remain retired.
