New York Giants news and notes: Selvish Capers human yo-yo edition

New, comments

The Giants have added Selvish Capers to the 53-man roster for the third time this season.

Kevin C. Cox

Good morning, New York Giants' fans! In case you haven't noticed, time is running out for you to get your Christmas shopping done almost as fast as time is running out for the meandering Giants to get their act together.

A quick bit of news. The Giants re-signed offensive lineman Selvish Capers Monday when they released cornerback Terrence Frederick. Pretty obvious signing Frederick off the practice squad Saturday was simply a matter of needing an emergency cornerback for Sunday as Prince Amukamara was out. By the way, Capers is this season's human yo-yo as this is the third time he has been added to the 53-man roster.

Here is the rest of your morning notebook.
