Two players were placed on injured reserve: safety Cooper Taylor, who injured the sesamoid bone in his left foot in Indianapolis on Aug. 16, and wide receiver Marcus Harris, who has a hip injury.The team is now down to 75 players.
Two players were waived/injured: linebacker Justin Anderson (hamstring) and defensive end Emmanuel Dieke (knee).
Eleven players were waived: cornerbacks Charles James and Ross Weaver; safeties C.J. Barnett and Kyle Sebetic; linebacker Spencer Adkins; wide receiver Travis Harvey; tight ends Xavier Grimble and Jerome Cunningham; guard John Sullen; defensive tackle Everett Dawkins; and kicker Brandon McManus.
The Giants will need to make final cuts by 4 p.m. on Saturday.
Correction. The Giants announced Harris was placed on IR with a torn labrum in his hip when in actuality the injury is to the shoulder.
As for the cuts...nothing unexpected, with the exception of James and Adkins who I thought would last until final cuts. James hurt his chances by not being part of the return teams. With Adkins, the return of Spencer Paysinger limited his chances.
6:45: Grimble and the Giants have come to an injury settlement.
