Giants' Boley To Miss One Month With Partially Torn Meniscus The Giants' defense took yet another hit on Tuesday as weakside linebacker Michael Boley underwent arthroscopic knee surgery that will keep him off the field for a month.

Boley played in the entirety of the Giants' 27-16 win over Kansas City on Sunday but after his right knee stiffened up during the plane ride back to New York, he was sent for tests, which revealed a partially torn meniscus, and he had surgery on  Tuesday morning, according to the New York Daily News.

Prior to the 2009 season, the 27-year-old signed a five-year, $25 million contract with New York. He underwent surgery in June to repair a torn labrum in his hip, then missed most of training camp while recovering.

In Sunday's game against the Chiefs, Boley was impressive, registering a sack, four tackles for losses and one pass knockdown.

Boley could return for a Nov. 8 matchup against San Diego but is more likely to return for a Nov. 22 game against Atlanta after a bye week.

The Giants D is already without safety Kenny Phillips — who is out for the season — plus defensive tackle Chris Canty and cornerback Aaron Ross.
