The New York Giants shuffled their practice squad on Tuesday. Quarterback Cooper Rush and running back Rod smith are out, while veteran running back Alfred Morris and quarterback Clayton Thorson are in.

Morris, added to the practice squad thanks to the new rules allowing veterans with unlimited experience to be signed, is the most notable addition. The 31-year-old has gained 5,935 yards rushing in an eight-year career that has seen him play for four teams, the Washington Redskins, Dallas Cowboys, San Francisco 49ers and one game last season for the Arizona Cardinals. Morris has averaged 4.3 yards per carry in his NFL career.

Thorson, 24, was a fifth-round pick by the Philadelphia Eagles in 2019. He was on the Dallas Cowboys practice squad last season after being cut by the Eagles, and was waived by Dallas at the beginning of this season.
