The New York Giants have announced that offensive lineman David Diehl will undergo surgery on his thumb today that will keep him out for the next six weeks. 

Diehl practiced yesterday with a cast on his right hand. After an MRI and examination by Dr. Hotchkiss this morning, it was determined the injury required surgical repair.

This means that Diehl could be out until late September or early October.
