The New York Giants are activating rookie DL R.J. McIntosh from the non-football injury list on Tuesday, according to Ian Rapoport.
The Giants have also waived WR/KR Quadree Henderson to make room for McIntosh.
McIntosh, 22, was selected with the No. 139 overall pick by the Giants in the fifth round of this year’s draft. He agreed to a four-year, $2,489,516 contract that includes a $321,468 signing bonus with the Giants.
During his three-year college career at Miami, McIntosh recorded 103 total tackles, 23 tackles for loss, 5.5 sacks, nine pass defenses, one fumble recovery, and one forced fumble.
Henderson, 22, wound up signing on with the Steelers as an undrafted free agent out of Pittsburgh back in April. He agreed to a three-year, $1.71 million contract but was, unfortunately, waived coming out of the preseason.
The Giants later signed Henderson to their practice squad before promoting him to their active roster a few weeks ago.
In 2018, Henderson has appeared in two games for the Giants and totaled 112 kick return yards and 47 punt return yards.
