08:03 AM ET 08.05 | There is another chapter in the saga that has become Osi Umenyiora and the New York Giants. The next fight in the [Umenyiora] war is apparently going to be the Battle of Wounded Knee. The latest shot was fired Thursday night when the disgruntled defensive end refused to practice because, according to a Giants spokesman, "he says he has a sore knee." Umenyiora also told the Giants he might "need" surgery on that knee to repair a torn meniscus, according to a source familiar with his situation. If he does, it's likely he'd miss at least some regular-season games. Although the Giants had no official comment on Umenyiora's injury, the fact they said "he says" he's injured was a good indication that they don't believe him -- or at least that they're skeptical of the extent of the injury.

What a whining a** malcontent. As I said before they should not trade him. Make him play every down including special teams. Get him for conduct detrimental to the team. That'll learn em.

Threatening surgery? Is that a nice way of saying he pulled a knife on somebody?

August 5, 2011  08:26 AM ET

It sounds like Osi has something else that hurts...

August 5, 2011  08:31 AM ET

In an earlier thread I said that I thought he'd be a good fit for the Vikings with Ray Edwards gone. I'd now like to retract that statement.

I thought maybe he was offering to amputate something for Jerry Reese.

August 5, 2011  08:37 AM ET

Sounds like a plan that would never back fire...

August 5, 2011  08:40 AM ET

Good grief.

This guy needs some PR help in a big way. Just when you think he can't look like a bigger whiner ........ he raises (or lowers) the bar.

Bravo.

Yeah, and just dig in harder into your skull w/that butterknife...

I'll look to the Giants to void his contract. If he needs surgery, he could have easly diclosed it and get the surgery done in the off season... Probably why he could not get traded in the first place.

He's beginning to sound like someone who needs a hysterectomy.

August 5, 2011  09:24 AM ET

Can't he get in trouble if the team doctors do not agree?

Better not use that line on the Mrs, unless you have put up all your knives.
