The New York Giants are adding a trio of players from their practice squad for Monday’s game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. They are running back to Alfred Morris, defender Montre Hartage and attacking midfielder Chad Slade.
Over the eight NFL seasons, the 31-year-old Morris has scored 5,935 quick shots and an average of 4.3 yards per shot. The Giants is his fifth NFL team. Morris signed with the Giants training team in late September. He gives them depth when Devonta Freeman is out with an ankle injury.
Hartage was cut off by Giants in the training camp after he was injured. He was re-contracted with the training team just last week. With winger Ryan Lewis (hamstring) added to the team̵7;s injury report over the weekend, the Hartage elevation makes sense. Hartage played four games for the Miami Dolphins last season.
Slade, a veteran attacker, will replace the will of Hernandez, who is on the Reserve / COVID-19 list. Since this is the height due to COVID-19, it does not count towards the Slade’s two-height limit without being exempt.
