Defensive end Osi Umenyiora was held out of today's practice although he was in uniform, coach Tom Coughlin said after practice. He has a knee injury that was bothering him.
It's believed to be Umenyiora's right knee, which put him on the injury list a couple weeks ago, not his surgically repaired left knee. He's listed as questionable, but Coughlin said he fully expects Umenyiora to be part of the rotation at defensive end Sunday night against the Bears. Defensive tackle Rocky Bernard (back) also is listed as questionable.
Center Shaun O'Hara (ankle/Achilles) officially has been declared out of the game along with OT Will Beatty (knee). Linebacker Keith Bulluck (turf toe) is doubtful and likely will be replaced in the starting lineup by Clint Sintim.
