The Giants announced Wednesday that they have officially placed TE Daniel Fells on season-ending injured reserve.
- New York has promoted former Packers WR Myles White to their active roster to take Fells’ place.
White, 25, wound up signing on with the Packers as an undrafted free agent out of Louisiana Tech back in 2013. He spent a good amount of time on the Packers practice squad and managed to make the 53-man roster this year. However, he was, unfortunately, waived to make room for James Jones.
White appeared in seven games for Green Bay during the 2013 season and recorded nine receptions for 66 yards receiving and no touchdowns.
Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that Giants TE Daniel Fells unexpectedly underwent foot surgery this past week and is likely to be placed on season-ending injured reserve at some point in the near future.
New York wound up promoting TE Will Tye off of their practice squad earlier in the week to bolster their depth at tight end, but there’s at least a chance they could be looking to add someone in the coming days.
Fells, 32, signed a one-year, $950,000 contract with the Giants back in March, so he’ll end up testing the open market again in 2016.
Assuming this is it for Fells, he will have finished the year with six receptions for 60 yards receiving and no touchdowns.
