Jason Pierre-Paul is ready to step up and deliver for the Giants with Osi Umenyiora missing to due to injury and Justin Tuck struggling to play Sunday.
The Giants signed veteran offensive lineman Tony Ugoh after placing Stacy Andrews on the injured reserve. They also released Selvish Capers and signed Ryan Perrilloux to the practice squad.
Hours before playing the undefeated Green Bay Packers, the Giants said Andrews had been admitted to Hackensack University Medical Center on Saturday night and would not play Sunday.
Giants are hoping to keep the New Orleans Saints guessing about their left tackle for Monday night’s game, though the choice of a replacement for Will Beatty is a no-brainer.
