[UPDATE by Ed Valentine, 10/21/10 4:05 PM EDT: MG has now updated his report with Kiwanuka telling reporters has has a 'herniated' disc, which is more severe than bulging disc he had previously admitted to.]

Mike Garafolo has the Giants injury update on NJ.com, and the news doesn't sound good for Mathias Kiwanuka, who has been visiting specialists over the past two weeks:

The timetable for his return remains indefinite.

"I don’t think anything has changed," coach Tom Coughlin said during his press conference. "I don’t have anything at this point to tell you other than he traveled to L.A., he came back and (from) the information I get, there is no change."


Keith Bullock and Kevin Boothe returned to practice today, but no official word on if they will play Monday night. Indications are Bullock will be able to play barring a setback.

Because Boothe was on the "PUP" list, the Giants now have three weeks to either activate or release him.

Also, from Ralph Vacchiano at The Blue Screen:

DE Osi Umenyiora rode the bike, taking off his customary first day of practice. FB Madison Hedgecock and RB D.J. Ware were also held out. K Lawrence Tynes didn’t work.
