Giants roster moves: Giants waive 2, including Alfred Morris, to reach 85-man roster

The Giants get down to the 85-player roster limit

NFL: New York Giants at Seattle Seahawks Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports

The New York Giants have announced a trio of transactions to trim their roster to the 85-man limit.

Tuesday morning the Giants announced that they have waived RB Alfred Morris and S Chris Milton. The team also placed CB Jarren Williams on the injured reserve with a quad injury.

The moves Tuesday morning cap off a flurry of activity in the wake of the first preseason game. Like the rest of the NFL, Giants had until today to trim their roster from 90 to 85 players, and the team also had to deal with a wave of injuries in their first action of the year.

Earlier this week, the Giants placed OG Kyle Murphy (ankle), LB T.J. Brunson (ACL), and S Joshua Kalu (pectoral) on the injured reserve, as well as waiving/injured QB Clayton Thorson (concussion).

The team signed former Michigan State quarterback Brian Lewerke to fill out their depth chart at the position, as well as trading with the Houston Texans for CB Keion Crossen to help fill the void on special teams created by the loss of Brunson and Kalu.

While the Giants are now at their new roster limit, more moves could still be on the horizon as they continue to churn the bottom of their roster.
