EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J., Aug. 24 (UPI) -- The New York Giants announced Sunday that Pro Bowl defensive end Osi Umenyiora is out for the season with a knee injury.

Umenyiora, the team's four-time sack leader, is scheduled to undergo surgery Tuesday to repair torn cartilage in his left knee. He injured the knee Saturday in the Giants' 10-7 pre-season loss to the New York Jets.

"I think the number one thing that strikes is frustration, anxiety, knots in your stomach -- all the things that go along with the injury to the players that do not allow your team to function as it is presented on paper," Coach Tom Coughlin said. "Those types of things are very difficult for coaches, no matter what age you are."
