New York Giants defensive end Osi Umenyiora is expected to miss at least the first two games of the season while recovering from arthroscopic knee surgery, according to a source with knowledge of the situation.

Umenyiora could possibly be back for Week 3, when the Giants face the Philadelphia Eagles. Umenyiora, who is coming off a productive season in which he finished with 11.5 sacks, initially didn’t report to training camp and sought a trade because he was unhappy with his contract situation.

Depending on how quickly Umenyiora returns, how the Giants start the season and how well youngster Jason Pierre-Paul plays in his place, the possibility for a trade could still exist.
