The New York Giants added two more players to their massive injured reserve list today, placing linebacker Jacquian Williams and offensive lineman James Brewer on season-ending IR. That brings the Giants total of players on IR to 22.

They were replaced on the roster by defensive tackle Dominique Hamilton, who was signed off the Giants' practice squad, and offensive lineman Adam Gettis, signed off the Pittsburgh Steelers' practice squad.

The Giants also signed defensive back Thomas Gordon to their practice squad.

Williams started each of the first nine games at weakside linebacker before suffering a concussion at Seattle on Nov. 9. At the time of his injury, his 75 tackles (52 solo) led the team. Williams has been inactive each of the last five games and he is still second on the team in tackles, trailing only Jameel McClain.

Brewer played in only two games this season.

The Giants also added safety Thomas Gordon, who was with the team during the preseason, to the practice squad.
