New York Giants offensive lineman David Diehl is expected to miss six weeks after surgery on his right thumb, the team announced Wednesday.

Diehl has spent his entire 10-year career with the Giants and made the Pro Bowl in 2009. He has played mostly tackle throughout his career but was sliding to guard after center David Baas was injured.

He started 10 games for New York last season. Doctors determined that the 33-year-old needed surgery because of instability in the joint.

Fox Sports 1's Mike Garafolo reports on Twitter that the surgery will "repair ligaments and a torn capsule in his thumb, which is out of the socket."
