New York Giants Sign DE/DT Lance Legree: The Giants have signed DE/DT Lance Legree. Legree played for the Giants from 2001-2004, mostly as a defensive tackle, but he has also played defensive end and the Giants will use him at end now due to all of the injuries that have hit the Giants at the position. In 2005, Legree signed a 5-year contract with the Jets as an unrestricted free agent. He was waived by the Jets in February, signed by the 49ers in August, and then waived by the 49ers in early September.

“Lance was in a position where he was the highest-rated player that we could bring in and so we did,” said Head Coach Tom Coughlin.

“I am very excited,” Legree said. “I am very glad to be back over here. It’s a great organization. I know a lot of the guys. It’s a good situation for me.”

To make room for Legree, the Giants officially placed DE Justin Tuck (Lisfranc foot injury) on Injured Reserve.

Injury Update: LB Carlos Emmons (groin) and WR Sinorice Moss (quad) both practiced yesterday. Emmons also practiced last Friday and Moss practiced all of last week. Both remain officially “questionable” for the game against the Jaguars on Monday night.

Not practicing were LB Brandon Short (quad), DE Osi Umenyiora (hip flexor), DE Michael Strahan (foot), CB Sam Madison (hamstring), and LT Luke Petitgout (leg). Short is “questionable;” Umenyiora and Madison are “doubtful;” and Strahan and Petitgout will not play.
