Giants DE Osi Umenyiora Fined $20,000 For Missing Media Session

Wednesday February 1st, 2012

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.
