EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) -New York Giants defensive end Osi Umenyiora missed his second straight practice Friday because of a sore left knee.
Umenyiora, the NFC's defensive player of the week after he sacked Philadelphia's Donovan McNabb a team-record six times and forced two fumbles Sunday night, has said he still expects to play against the New York Jets on Sunday.
He initially injured the knee in the Giants opening game at Dallas on Sept. 9.
``Right now, I think he has made good progress, he is better than he was yesterday,'' Giants coach Tom Coughlin said Friday. ``So we are very hopeful.''
Umenyiora and wide receiver Plaxico Burress (ankle) were both listed as questionable for Sunday.
Burress sprained his right ankle in early August in training camp and re-injured it against the Green Bay Packers on Sept. 16. He has been kept out of practice but has played in all four Giants games.
