One of the more interesting late moves made by the New York Giants as they pared their roster down to the regular-season limit of 53 players was the placement of backup quarterback Sage Rosenfels on injured reserve due to illness and the subsequent back injury he suffered.
Here are the rest of the transactions:
Safety Brian Jackson (hip) was waived/injured.
The team terminated the contracts of six veterans: wide receiver Michael Clayton, tight end Daniel Coats, guard Ikechuku Ndukwe, center Chris White, defensive tackle Gabe Watson and kicker Rhys Lloyd.
Nineteen players were waived: Phillip Dillard, Adrian Tracy, Dodge, quarterback Ryan Perrilloux, running backs Andre Brown and Charles Scott, tight end Christian Hopkins, wide receiver Darius Reynaud, tackles Jamon Meredith and Jarriel King, center Jim Cordle, defensive ends Ayanaga Okpokowuruk, Craig Marshall, Alex Hall and Justin Trattou and Dwayne Hendricks and defensive backs Joe Burnett, David Sims and Jerrard Tarrant.
Here is the roster, as it stands right now
Kicker (1): Lawrence Tynes
Punter (1): Steve Weatherford
Long Snapper (1): Zak DeOssie
