Ryan Torain to be signed by Giants -- report

Ryan Torain (46) is reportedly being signed by the Giants - Whitney Curtis

As had been reported as a possibility earlier in the day has now been reported as a fact by Jason LaCanfora of CBS Sports. According to LaCanfora, the Giants are indeed signing running back Ryan Torain. Earlier Tuesday the Giants added Kregg Lumpkin to their running back stable.

It might seem a little surprising at first glance that the Giants added two backs, but it really is not. The Giants began the season with four running backs (plus fullback Henry Hynoski) and have now placed both Andre Brown (broken leg) and Da'Rel Scott (knee surgery) on injured reserve. Adding a pair of backs simply puts them back to where they originally started the season in terms of the number of running backs being carried.

Consider also both the tenuous health of starter Ahmad Bradshaw and the fact that rookie David Wilson remains unproven and it isn't surprising the Giants are fortifying that spot.

Torain, 6-foot, 213 pounds, has three years of NFL experience -- the last two with the Washington Redskins. Last season for Washington, whom the Giants face Monday night, Torain playing in eight games, starting four. He carried 59 times for 200 yards (3.4 yards per carry) and caught six passes.
