The Giants officially moved linebacker Ryan Connelly to the injured reserve list on Monday and have now announced a corresponding move.
Taking Connelly's spot is defensive end Chris Peace, who the Giants claimed off of waivers from the Chargers.
Connelly, was serving as the Giants' defensive play-caller this week against the Washington Redskins with starters Alec Ogletree (hamstring) and Tae Davis (concussion) out. The Giants won 24-3 but Connelly was carted off after being injured.
In the contest, the fifth-round pick had a sack and interception of Redskins QB Case Keenum.
Peace signed with the Chargers as an undrafted rookie free agent this offseason out of Virginia. He made the team's final cuts and played three special teams snaps in their season opener but was released, later re-signed, then recently again released on Sept. 28.
