The injuries continued to mount Saturday for the New York Giants when they were forced to place veteran wide receiver Michael Clayton on injured reserve after Clayton suffered a torn meniscus during practice. He will have surgery Monday.
To fill Clayton’s roster spot the Giants signed defensive end Justin Trattou off their their practice squad. Trattou, a 6-foot-4, 255-pound undrafted free agent, played in the Giants’ season opener, but was subsequently released and re-signed to the practice squad.
Clayton was signed earlier this season after Domenik Hixon suffered a season-ending knee injury. He also spent part of last season with the Giants.
Clayton appeared in five games for the Giants and did not catch a pass. He was used primarily on special teams and was credited with one special teams tackle.
