The New York Giants made a pair of roster moves on Monday, waiving running back Deon Jackson and offensive tackle Joshua Miles. Both were midseason depth additions.

Jackson was claimed off waivers from the Cleveland Browns on Oct. 24 when the Giants placed running back Eric Gray on injured reserve. A few days later, the Giants also placed running back Gary Brightwell on IR.

Jackson appeared in one game for the Giants, carrying one time for 2 yards against the Las Vegas Raiders in Week 9.

Miles, a 2019 seventh-round pick by the Arizona Cardinals, was signed off the Atlanta Falcons practice squad on Oct. 17. He was inactive for each game while with the Giants.

No corresponding moves were announced by the Giants, so they currently have a pair of open roster spots.

Running back Eric Gray (calf) and offensive tackle Matt Peart (shoulder) were both placed on IR after the Giants’ Week 7 game against the Washington Commanders. Both are now eligible to return.

The Giants also have a decision to make at placekicker this week. The Giants have carried Cade York on the roster for three weeks after signing him off the Tennessee Titans practice squad to replace the injured Graham Gano. York, though, has been inactive each week as veteran Randy Bullock has been elevated from the practice squad to handle that job. He has made all six extra-point attempts and his only field goal try for the Giants.

Bullock, though, is now out of practice squad elevations. If the Giants to continue with him as their kicker they will have to add him to the 53-man roster. Perhaps we will see Bullock signed to the roster and York waived then re-signed to the practice squad if he clears waivers.
