Burress is out of practice on a long-term basis while the Giants manage his injury. He has continued to play.
Umenyiora, who had a team-record six sacks last week, is feeling soreness in the knee he hurt in the season opener in Dallas. He said he expects to play Sunday.
"There are always medical people involved and they are going to make whatever decision has to be made," Giants coach Tom Coughlin said. "Right now, I think he has made good progress, he is better than he was yesterday. So we are very hopeful."
The Giants listed five players as probable: Running backs Brandon Jacobs (knee) and Derrick Ward (ankle), defensive end Michael Strahan (knee), guard Chris Snee (knee) and safety Gibril Wilson (hip).
Strahan and Ward were limited in Friday's practice, while the other three players practiced fully.
