Before Monday night's game against the Lions, the Giants have promoted LB Curtis Grant and waived WR Tavarres King.
Grant, who has never played in a regular-season game, was expected to be promoted after it was known LB B.J. Goodson would likely be inactive Monday night due to a shin injury. Grant was waived by the Giants prior to the start of the season where they immediately signed him to their practice squad the next day.
He entered the league with the Chargers as an undrafted free agent in 2015 where he was eventually waived. in 2016, he bounced around the league starting with the Titans for training camp, and then served on the practice squad for the Raiders and 49ers throughout the season.
In four preseason games with the Giants, Grant totaled 19 tackles (11 solo).
King, who was inactive in the Giants' season opener against the Cowboys, played in eight games last season (one postseason). He tallied four catches for 63 yards in the regular season, and three receptions for 73 yards including a 41-yard touchdown in the Wild Card round against the Packers.
The Giants can re-sign King if he clears waivers this week.
