The New York Giants have put starting left tackle Will Beatty on the reserve/physically unable to perform list in reducing their roster to 74 players.
It was a hard blow to the team to lose Bennett Jackson (torn ACL) in the fourth quarter of the game, considering he was competing for a starting role.
Giants starting safety Bennett Jackson will be lost for the year, the latest injury that has ravaged the team’s most inexperienced position.
Gone from last season’s team are Antrel Rolle, Stevie Brown and Quintin Demps, the three players who combined to start at free and strong safety in 2014.
Bennett Jackson remembers the day last August when he received a text message that changed his life.
It has definitely been a disappointing season for the New York Giants, evidenced by their 5-9 record. If there is a highlight for 2014, it would have to be the overall play of their rookie class.
That leaves only one unsigned player for the Giants from this month’s selections, defensive tackle Jay Bromley, taken in the third round.
On the final day of the 2014 NFL Draft, the Giants selected running back Andre Williams, strong safety Nat Berhe, outside linebacker Devon Kennard and cornerback Bennett Jackson.
