NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — And the hits just keep on coming.
A day after learning cornerback Walter Thurmond had been lost for the season due to a torn pectoral muscle, the Giants announced on Tuesday that wide receiver Jerrel Jernigan was placed on season-ending injured reserve with a mid-foot sprain.
Jernigan, who was injured during the Giants’ 25-14 home loss to the Arizona Cardinals, had six receptions for 40 yards over the first two games.
The situation surrounding middle linebacker Jon Beason isn’t as cut and dry. The team announced that he aggravated a foot injury that forced him to miss all of the preseason. Beason may visit foot and ankle specialist Dr. Robert Anderson in North Carolina, the team added.
As a result of the injuries, the Giants signed receiver Julian Talley and linebacker Dan Fox off their practice squad.
Thurmond, who the Giants signed away from the world champion Seattle Seahawks during the offseason, had surgery on Tuesday. Trumaine McBride was considered the front-runner to take over Thurmond’s slot corner responsibilities.
New York terminated defensive end Jordan Stanton’s contract from the practice squad and signed wide receivers Travis Harvey and L’Damian Washington to the practice squad.
The Giants (0-2) take on the visiting Houston Texans (2-0) on Sunday.
