New York Giants Place Jim Cordle on Injured Reserve, Promote Stephen Goodin from Practice Squad: The New York Giants placed OC Jim Cordle on season-ending Injured Reserve on Tuesday. Cordle tore the patella tendon in his left knee in last Sunday’s game against the Dallas Cowboys. To fill Cordle’s roster spot, the Giants signed OG/OC Stephen Goodin from the Practice Squad. Because of these moves, we have updated the Transactions, Roster Analysis (with scouting report), Roster, and Depth Chart sections of the website.
Practice Squad Moves: The Giants signed OT Steven Baker to the Practice Squad. This is Baker’s third stint on the Giants’ Practice Squad this season. The Giants also terminated the Practice Squad contract of CB Brandon Jones, who the Giants had signed in early November. Because of these moves, we have updated the Transactions, Roster, and Roster Analysis (including scouting report) sections of the website.
