  • The Giants promoted cornerback Donte Deayon off their practice squad to replace the suspended Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie on their 53-man roster. Cromartie was suspended indefinitely earlier on Thursday. This marks the latest in a string of practice squad promotions for Big Blue this week. The Giants summoned three wide receivers from their taxi squad due to the string of injuries they suffered at that position. As for Deayon, he signed a Giants reserve/futures deal in January and latched on with their practice squad in September.
  • Linebacker Adam Bighill will rise from the Saints‘ practice squad to their active roster, Josh Katzenstein of NOLA.com tweets. The Saints kept Bighill on a futures deal and used him in one game earlier this season.
