Here are Monday’s minor moves:
- Waived: DT Domenique Davis
- Waived: WR Stanley Berryhill
Las Vegas Raiders
- Placed on IR: LB Divine Deablo
New Orleans Saints
- Activated from IR: DB P.J. Williams
- Placed on IR: LB Chase Hansen
- Signed to active roster: WR Kevin White
- Elevated: RB Jordan Howard
New York Giants
- Designated for return: G Shane Lemieux
- Placed on IR: DT Nicholas Williams
Lemieux has been out since September 2021. A severe knee injury paused Lemieux’s career, sidelining him after he had commandeered a starting job. The Giants drafted Lemieux in the 2020 fifth round and turned to him as a starter for much of his rookie season. But the team’s new regime addressed the interior line extensively this offseason, signing Mark Glowinski and Jon Feliciano before drafting Joshua Ezeudu and Marcus McKethan.
The Giants, however, lost McKethan for the season and are without starting left guard Ben Bredeson. The team having Lemieux and former center starter Nick Gates, who also battled back from a severe injury, back will provide some options for Brian Daboll up front. Bredeson, whom the team placed on IR last week, will be a candidate to be one of Big Blue’s injury activations later this season.
