The New York Giants announced a trio of roster moves late Saturday afternoon to fill out their 53-man roster. The Giants announced the signings of interior offensive lineman Jonotthan Harrison and wide receiver C.J. Board to their active roster.

Linebacker and special teams ace Cam Brown was placed on the injured reserve list with a hamstring injury.

The Giants had an open roster spot available after interior offensive lineman Nick Gates’ season-ending injury. The promotion of Harrison to their active roster from the practice squad will help fill out the Giants’ offensive line depth, and give them a back-up center behind Billy Price. The Giants have also had second year offensive tackle Matt Peart practice inside at guard to help give them options in the event of another injury.

Harrison was signed to the Giants’ practice squad following final cut downs last month.

Brown had distinguished himself as a core special teams player throughout the 2020 season and the 2021 preseason. He missed last weeks’ game with a hamstring injury, and the promotion of C.J. Board will help fill the void left by Brown’s absence.
