LANDON COLLINS PLACED ON IR…
The New York Giants have placed safety Landon Collins on Injured Reserve with shoulder injury that will require season-ending surgery. To fill the roster vacancy, the Giants signed safety Kenny Ladler from the team’s Practice Squad. The Giants also signed punter Brock Miller to the Practice Squad.

The Giants signed Ladler to the Practice Squad in November 2018. The 6’1”, 200-pound Ladler was originally signed as an undrafted rookie free agent by the Buffalo Bills after the 2014 NFL Draft. He has spent time with the Bills (2014-2015), Edmonton Eskimos (2016-2017), and Washington Redskins (2018). Ladler has played in seven regular-season NFL games with no starts. Five of those games came with the Redskins in 2018. The Redskins waived him in November.

Miller went undrafted in 2014. While he has worked out for a number of teams since then, he went unsigned until the San Francisco 49ers signed him in 2017. But they cut him after the 2017 NFL Draft. Miller spent some time with the Jacksonville Jaguars before last year’s AFC Championship Game, but he did not play.

NEW YORK GIANTS INJURY REPORT…
With safety Landon Collins (shoulder) being placed on Injured Reserve, the only player on the 53-man roster who did not practice on Thursday was linebacker Tae Davis (ankle).

Linebacker B.J. Goodson (neck/foot) practiced on a limited basis.

Tight end Evan Engram (hamstring), wide receiver Sterling Shepard (rib), and linebacker Lorenzo Carter (hip) fully practiced.

Running back Jonathan Stewart’s three-week practice period has expired, meaning he will remain on Injured Reserve for the remainder of the season. Stewart was placed on IR in September with a foot injury. He was designated for return last month, which opened a three-week window in which the Giants had to make the decision of whether or not to place him on the active roster.

Defensive end Kerry Wynn (concussion) was the only player to not practice on Friday. He has officially been ruled out of Sunday’s game against the Philadelphia Eagles.

PRACTICE SQUAD MOVES…
The New York Giants have signed place kicker Marshall Koehn to the Practice Squad and terminated the Practice Squad contract of tight end Garrett Dickerson.

“No (nothing wrong with Aldrick Rosas), this time of year and you’ll see as we go through the season, we’re just kicking tires on guys,” said Head Coach Pat Shurmur. “Obviously he competed well for us during camp and we brought him back in midseason, you just never know when you might need a guy, and kicker’s the same as any other position.”

Koehn was originally signed by the Miami Dolphins as an undrafted rookie free agent after the 2016 NFL Draft. He has spent time with the Dolphins (2016), Minnesota Vikings (2017), and Cincinnati Bengals (2017). The Giants signed Koehn to a reserve/futures contract in January 2018, but waived him before the season started. He’s played in only one regular-season game with no field goal attempts.

The Giants signed undrafted rookie free agent Garrett Dickerson in June 2018. He began the season on the team’s Practice Squad, was added to the 53-man roster, and then re-signed to the Practice Squad.

NEW YORK GIANTS INJURY REPORT…
Fullback Eli Penny (back), linebacker Alec Ogletree (ribs), cornerback Antonio Hamilton (hip), and free safety Curtis Riley (shoulder) fully practiced on Thursday.

Running back Jonathan Stewart, who was placed on Injured Reserve in September with a foot injury, has had his roster status changed to Designated for Return/Return to Practice. Stewart now begins a three-week window (until December 6th) in which the Giants must decide to activate Stewart or keep him on Injured Reserve for the remainder of the season. Because Stewart must sit out a minimum of eight games, he is not eligible to return to the active roster until November 26th.

GIANTS SIGN QUADREE HENDERSON TO PRACTICE SQUAD…
The New York Giants have signed wide receiver/returner Quadree Henderson to the team’s Practice Squad. The 22-year old, 5’8”, 192-pound Henderson was originally signed as an undrafted rookie free agent after the 2018 NFL Draft. The Steelers waived him before the season started.

“Production (as a return man) – he’s a sure-handed guy,” said Special Teams Coordinator Thomas McGaughey. “He obviously had a lot of production in college and we like what we saw on tape and his pro day, like we saw there, so he has a lot of potential like any young guy that had a lot of production in college. We’d like to see what he does at the next level.”

To make room for Henderson, the Giants terminated the Practice Squad contract of wide receiver Amba Etta-Tawo, who was signed to the Practice Squad on September 26th.
