Osi Umenyiora got the operation he needed and is now on the road to recovery.
The Giants’ defensive end underwent surgery on his hip Monday to repair side effects from a torn labrum he suffered in 2006, according to someone informed of the procedure. The person, who requested anonymity because neither the Giants nor Umenyiora have provided an update, said the surgery was “very successful.”
The person said Umenyiora’s surgery was performed at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York by orthopedic surgeon Brian Kelly. The expected recovery time is three months, which means Umenyiora would be working his way back to top shape in late April. He might be limited in offseason workouts and organized team activities – provided, of course, both will take place under a new collective bargaining agreement.
