The New York Giants have added starting cornerback Ryan Lewis to their injury report with a hamstring issue. Lewis is officially listed as doubtful for the Monday Night Football game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Lewis’ injury throws the Giants’ secondary into further disarray. Safety Adrian Colbert will miss his third straight game with a shoulder injury. Rookie Xavier McKinney, the team’s second-round pick, has missed the entire season with a fractured foot.

Lewis is the third player the Giants have used as their No. 2 cornerback.

Second-year man Corey Ballentine began the season in that role. He was replaced by Isaac Yiadom, whom the Giants acquired from the Denver Broncos in exchange for a seventh-round draft pick. Both of those players started two games before Lewis took over, starting the last three.

The Giants could turn to Ballentine, Yiadom or Madre Harper on Monday night. They could also use veteran Logan Ryan at cornerback, with Jabrill Peppers and Julian Love at the safety spots.
