Giants Promoting LB Josiah Tauaefa To Active Roster


According to Dan Duggan, the Giants are promoting LB Josiah Tauaefa from the practice squad to the active roster. 

With fifth-round rookie LB Ryan Connelly out for the year with a torn ACL and LBs Alec Ogletree (hamstring) and Tae Davis (concussion) hurt, New York needs depth at inside linebacker. 

Tauaefa, 22, signed with the Giants as an undrafted free agent out of UT-San Antonio following the 2019 NFL Draft. He was waived by the team coming out of the preseason and re-signed to the practice squad. 

During his four-year college career, Tauaefa recorded 255 total tackles, 11.5 sacks, two forced fumbles, one recovery, one interception, one defensive touchdown and three pass defenses in 32 career games.
