The New York Giants will fill vacancies on their 53-man roster by promoting cornerback Brandon Dixon from their practice squad, and by signing defensive back Darryl Morris.
The Giants placed four players on IR Monday, including cornerback Donte Deayon. Janoris Jenkins is also dealing with an ankle injury, so they needed help at the cornerback position.
Morris, 5-10 and 190 pounds, has played in 48 games with three starts for San Francisco, the Houston Texans and the Indianapolis Colts. In 2016, he played in 12 games with two starts for the Colts and had a career-high 34 tackles (27 solo). He was released by the Colts in early October.
The Giants added linebackers Ray-Ray Armstrong and Jeremy Cash on Monday. They still have one roster spot to fill. Perhaps that player will come from a group on nine players the Giants reportedly worked out this week.
Realistically, not much should be expected from anyone added at this point. The Giants simply need to fill out the roster to complete the season.
