Giants Place C Weston Richburg On Injured Reserve, Promote CB Tim Scott

The New York Giants announced Saturday that they’ve placed C Weston Richburg on injured reserve and promoted CB Tim Scott to their active roster.

Richburg sustained a concussion on October 1 and has not played since then.

Richburg, 26, is a former second-round pick of the Giants back in 2014. He’s currently in the final year of his four-year, $4,877,346 contract and stands to make a base salary of $1,085,091 for the 2017 season.

Richburg will be an unrestricted free agent next year.

In 2017, Richburg appeared in four games for the Giants and is rated by Pro Football Focus as the No. 14 center out of 36 qualifying players.

Scott, 24, wound up signing on with the Cowboys as an undrafted free agent out of North Carolina back in 2015. He was waived coming out of the preseason and later signed to the Cowboys’ practice squad.

Scott finished out the 2015 season with the Browns and returned to Cleveland on a future/reserve contract. After a brief stint with the Redskins, Scott signed on with the Giants but was cut loose and later added to their practice squad at the start of the season.

Scott has yet to appear in an NFL game.
