Giants linebacker Michael Boley to miss a month after knee surgery

New York Daily News—October 6, 2009

Giants linebacker Michael Boley will miss the next month of the season after undergoing surgery Tuesday morning to repair a partially torn meniscus in his right knee.

Boley, who was coming off his finest game in his extremely short career with the Giants, seemed to be fine after the Giants' 27-16 win in Kansas City on Sunday. But his right knee apparently stiffened up on the plane ride home after the game.

The next day, he was spotted at the Giants' practice facility on crutches and Tom Coughlin said he was being sent for tests. Those tests showed the partially torn meniscus, and he underwent arthroscopic surgery this morning at Hospital for Special Surgery in New York.

It's actually his second surgery in the last four months. He tore his hip labrum in June and needed to have that repaired, and his recovery from that surgery kept him out for most of training camp.
