Giants linebackers Boley, Kehl sidelined after surgeries

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- The New York Giants are dealing with the loss of linebackers Michael Boley and Bryan Kehl, who both had surgery and will sit out this weekend against Oakland.

Boley had arthroscopic surgery Tuesday to repair a partially torn meniscus in his right knee. Dr. Russell Warren expects Boley to be sidelined approximately four weeks. He played in Sunday's victory at Kansas City, but his knee stiffened during the flight home on Sunday night.

Kehl, who recovered a fumble on the opening kickoff against the Chiefs on Sunday, underwent surgery Tuesday for a fractured left index finger. Dr. Robert Hotchkiss said Kehl's status is week to week.
