EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — The New York Giants have signed defensive tackle Dwayne Hendricks to their 53-man roster.

Hendricks takes the spot that opened when the NFL suspended defensive tackle Jimmy Kennedy for four games for violating the league’s policy on performance enhancing substances.

The Giants announced the move Saturday, a day before their game against the Buffalo Bills at MetLife Stadium.

Hendricks spent the first five weeks of the season on the Giants’ practice squad, a spot he also had most of last season.
