Umenyiora Expected To Play Sunday Night vs. Dallas

Rachel Nichols of ESPN reports New York Giants defensive end Osi Umenyiora is expected to play Sunday night against the Dallas Cowboys despite a sprained ankle that has kept him out of the previous four games.

Umenyiora practiced on a limited basis this week and was listed as questionable.

He will be evaluated once he gets to the stadium and will go through warm-ups.

Umenyiora has not played since the Giants lost to New Orleans on Nov. 28. He said Thursday he was hopeful, although it will be coach Tom Coughlin’s call. The coach said Umenyiora seemed to do OK during a limited practice Friday.

Umenyiora missed the first three games of the season after having his knee scoped, and returned Oct. 2 against the Cardinals. He has played eight games this season, recording seven sacks (second-most on the team), two forced fumbles and eight quarterback hits.

    If he plays that would be great but if he starts over JPP I am shutting off the TV.
