Dan Duggan is reporting that undrafted rookie tight end Rysen John, waived in training camp with an injury settlement, is returning to the practice squad.
Stapleton also reported that wide receiver/kick returner Corey Coleman worked out for the Giants last week and began the entry protocol.
The Giants have also designated cornerback Brandon Williams for return from IR and he reportedly will practice this week.
John is a former Division II tight end with intriguing physical skills the Giants might be able to develop. Hartage was on his way to making the team in August before being injured. Coleman, if indeed he is re-signed, could provide wide receiver depth and perhaps take over kickoff return duties. The Giants have averaged just 20.5 yards on kickoff returns thus far as Corey Ballentine has handled the majority of that duty. Williams began the season as one of the team’s punt gunners.
The Giants terminated the contract of center Javon Patterson from the practice squad.
