An injury to kicker Lawrence Tynes caused the Giants to do some roster juggling today.
The Giants signed kicker Shayne Graham because Tynes, who sprained his ankle in Friday’s practice, struggled in this morning’s walk-through. To make room on the roster for Graham, the Giants placed receiver Victor Cruz on injured reserve.
Tynes thinks he’ll be able to play on Sunday against the Lions, but now Graham will be available if Tynes can’t go.
Graham was cut by the Ravens after losing a training camp battle with Billy Cundiff. Cruz made the Giants’ roster after a great preseason, but he didn’t catch a pass in the regular season, and he suffered a hamstring injury in practice this week.
