The New York Giants placed right tackle Evan Neal on injured reserve in a flurry of roster moves on Sunday.
Neal has struggled with injury this year, suffering a pair of ankle sprains which have plagued him for most of the year. His latest injury was suffered early in November and he missed the next five games prior to this week. Placing Neal on the injured reserve ends his season. It also means that the Giants will go into the 2024 offseason with a question mark at right tackle.
The Giants activated former third-round pick Matt Peart off of the injured reserve as a corresponding roster move. Peart was drafted in the 2020 NFL draft and it was hoped that he and Andrew Thomas would become long-term bookends. He'll likely be Tyre Phillips' backup at right tackle for the remainder of the season.
The moves continued, as the Giants also activated kicker Mason Crosby and edge defender Tomon Fox from the practice squad. The Giants just signed Crosby to their practice squad after placing both Randy Bullock and Cade York on injured reserve.
