The new York Giants added three players to their practice on Monday — guard Kenny Wiggins, running back Taquan Mizzell and cornerback Quincy Wilson.

The Giants had signed Wiggins, an eight-year veteran, to their 53-man roster on Nov. 3 as insurance with Will Hernandez on the Reserve/COVID-19 list. When Hernandez returned last week, the Giants waived Wiggins and promoted rookie undrafted free agent offensive lineman Kyle Murphy to the active roster.

Wilson was part of a group of players who worked out for the Giants last week. He was a 2017 second-round draft pick of the Indianapolis Colts. He has 32 games of NFL experience, 29 with the Colts and three earlier this season for the New York Jets.

Giants defensive coordinator Patrick Graham likes big-bodied, long-armed cornerbacks who can run. Wilson fits several of those categories.

Mizzell played in 12 games for the Chicago Bears in 2017 and 2018, rushing nine times for 16 yards and catching eight passes. Since then, he has spent time on the practice squads of the Bears and New Orleans Saints.
