EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. – The Giants today activated linebacker Azeez Ojulari from injured reserve and elevated kicker Randy Bullock and tight end Tyree Jackson to the active roster from the practice squad for their game tomorrow against the Dallas Cowboys in AT&T Stadium.
Ojulari missed the last four games after injuring his ankle against the Dolphins in Miami on Oct. 8. He has two tackles this season in limited action.
It's the second consecutive elevation for Bullock, who was signed to the practice squad on Nov. 3. He was the Giants' kicker last week in Las Vegas but attempted neither a field goal nor an extra point. Both of his kickoffs were touchbacks.
This is Bullock's second stint with the Giants. He was their kicker for the 2016 season opener – in Dallas – when Josh Brown served an NFL suspension. In 138 regular-season games for Houston, the Jets and Giants, Pittsburgh, Cincinnati and Tennessee, Bullock has made 211 of 253 field goal attempts (83.4%), including 14 of 28 from 50+ yards, and 285 of 298 PATs. Bullock has 357 touchbacks on 639 kickoffs (55.9%). He made his only postseason field goal attempt with Tennessee in 2021.
The Giants also have kicker Cade York on their roster. Bullock and York were signed when Graham Gano was placed on injured reserve with a knee injury that required surgery.
Jackson, 6-7 and 249 pounds, has been a member of the Giants' practice squad since Aug. 31 and will make his team debut if he plays.
A former collegiate quarterback, he entered the NFL as a rookie free agent with Buffalo in 2019, when Joe Schoen and Brian Daboll were with the Bills. He was released at the end of training camp and did not re-enter the league until he was signed on Jan. 6, 2021 by the Philadelphia Eagles, who converted him to tight end.
That season, Jackson played in his first nine NFL games with three starts and caught three passes for 22 yards, including one touchdown – all against Dallas in the season finale on Jan. 8, 2022. He also played in five games in the 2022 season but did not have a catch. He was waived on Aug. 29.
Jackson played quarterback for three seasons at the University at Buffalo, where he completed 533 of 955 passes (55.8%) for 6,999 yards, 49 touchdowns and 24 interceptions.
Jackson becomes the third tight end eligible to play for the Giants tomorrow, joining Daniel Bellinger and Lawrence Cager. Another tight end, Darren Waller, is on injured reserve with a hamstring injury. Waller leads the Giants with 36 receptions.
