The NFL has fined New York Giants defensive lineman Osi Umenyiora $20,000 for missing this morning’s media session, according to ProFootballTalk.
Umenyiora was reportedly at a Giants team meeting earlier this afternoon, which likely means his absence was not team related.
The 30-year-old registered nine sacks in nine games for the Giants this season. He also forced two fumbles and recorded 19 tackles. Last year the All-Pro defenseman registered 11.5 sacks and 10 forced fumbles in 16 games for New York.
