 games as the kickoff and punt returner for the New York Giants www.newyorkgiantsteamonline.com , the team waived him this week to make room on the roster for defensive lineman R.J. McIntosh, the fifth-round pick who had been on the non-football illness list.The Giants Thursday brought Henderson back, signing him to the practice squad and cutting running back Jhurell Pressley. Coach Pat Shurmur indicated that Henderson could still be the team’s return man on Monday against the San Francisco 49ers, something that would require another roster move.“We had to make a roster move to get R.J. (McIntosh) up. He’s cleared (waivers),” Shurmur said. “We certainly can make a roster move all the way up until game day, so there’s always a chance we can bring him up, but we had to make a roster move that required us releasing someone and so we did that.”If Henderson is not activated New York Giants T-Shirt , rookie Jawill Davis would seem the logical candidate to be the primary returner. Davis has averaged 24.4 yards on seven returns.Henderson is also a wide receiver, and the Giants currently have six of those — Davis, Odell Beckham Jr., Sterling Shepard, Corey Coleman, Russell Shepard, Bennie Fowler — on the roster.Giants injury report New York Giants Hats , 9/14: Olivier Vernon OUT Sunday vs. Dallas Cowboys The New York Giants will once again be without the services of their best pass rusher on Sunday against the Dallas Cowboys. Olivier Vernon will miss a second straight game due to an ankle injury suffered during a preseason practice.Coach Pat Shurmur told media at practice on Friday that the Giants hope Vernon will be able to play next week when the Giants face the Houston Texans.The Giants held the Jacksonville Jaguars to 13 offensive points without Vernon last week, but had only one sack and limited pressure on quarterback Blake Bortles with Vernon sidelined.Defensive coordinator James Bettcher knows the Giants miss Vernon.“When you’re talking about one of the elite pass rushers in the league, do you miss him? Sure, you’d love to have him. You go ask the 31 other (teams) if they want OV, all 31 will say yes,” Bettcher said on Thursday. “I do love the make-up of that room. I love Connor Barwin, Kareem Martin and Lorenzo Carter. All those guys got their hand on the pylon New York Giants Hoodie , you can see them. We’re lining them up in different spots, sometimes Connor’s inside, sometimes Kareem’s inside, and we’re moving them around and trying to get them on matchups.”Week 6 Injury ReportPlayerPositionInjuryTues.Wed.Game StatusPlayerPositionInjuryTues.Wed.Game Status
