Terrell Thomas Placed On Injured Reserve; Jimmy Kennedy Signed

The New York Giants placed injured cornerback Terrell Thomas on Injured Reserve today, officially ending his season. Thomas, of course, tore an ACL during the first half of Monday's 41-13 preseason victory over the Chicago Bears. The Giants also waived/injured cornerback Brian Witherspoon, who also tore his ACL Monday, and wide receiver Samuel Giguere. Giguere tore a hamstring in practice last week.

In a bit of brighter news, the Giants officially announced the signing of veteran defensive tackle Jimmy Kennedy in a move that had been expected for several days.

Kennedy is an eight-year veteran who played sparingly for the Minnesota Vikings last season. He joins veterans Rocky Bernard and Gabe Watson is competing for a roster spot along with Chris Canty and youngsters Linval Joseph and Marvin Austin.

Kennedy, a Yonkers native, was drafted in the first round (12th overall) by the St. Louis Rams in 2003. The Giants are Kennedy's fifth NFL team.
