The Giants announced that they have waived TE Matt LaCosse and elevated FB Shane Smith from the practice squad.
LaCosse is a special teams player, as he has zero receptions and has only been targeted once. He has three receptions (on four targets) for 22 yards and zero touchdowns in his career.
Smith, who made the team this summer after going undrafted out of San Jose State, can play both fullback and tight end, but has recorded no stats in his career.
The Giants (1-7) will travel to San Francisco to face the 49ers on Sunday afternoon.
