Waller has missed the last five games with a hamstring injury, something also cost him time last season when he was a member of the Las Vegas Raiders.
Waller’s 36 catches and 384 receiving yards remain second on the team. He said earlier in the week that he probably would not be ready to play a full game, but felt he could contribute in a limited number of snaps.
“I plan on contributing given the opportunity,” he said.
Waller practiced on Thursday and Friday and had been listed as questionable.
The Giants acquired Waller in the offseason in exchange for a third-round pick. He was the team’s leading receiver when he went down with his hamstring injury. Waller has been limited by injuries now in three successive seasons.
To make room for Waller, the Giants waived sparingly used veteran safety Bobby McCain.
