The Giants said X-rays showed no break, but they were planning on getting further tests done upon returning to New York.
Dallas also lost nose tackle Jason Ferguson to an elbow injury in the first quarter. He was declared out for the night, although he returned to the bench still in pads with the elbow heavily bandaged.
Umenyiora, who led the NFC with 14 1/2 sacks two years ago, was hurt while dragging down Dallas running back Julius Jones on New York's first defensive stand. He spent a few plays trying to get comfortable on the sideline, then went to the locker room, accompanied by several team staffers. He walked under his own power.
