Kiwanuka going back to DE?

If it turns out defensive end Osi Umenyiora will miss significant time with his injured knee Coach Tom Coughlin has admitted that could prompt the Giants to move Mathias Kiwanuka back to his original position.

Here's a Coughlin quote, from the Star-Ledger.

"There'll be more discussions in the next day or so," Coughlin said about a potential move for Kiwanuka. "We need to get a handle on where Osi is."

The switch of Kiwanuka, the former No. 1 pick from Boston College, has so far met with mixed results. He's struggling to grasp pass coverage and still learning how to position himself.

What do you guys think? I still believe he could be a force at linebacker once he gets comfortable, but if Umenyiora is out for several weeks we may never find out.
