Giants sign WR Corey Coleman to practice squad; LB Trent Harris promoted to active roster


The Giants today made several roster moves as they returned to the field for the first time since their loss in Philadelphia last week.

Linebacker Trent Harris was signed to the active roster from the practice squad for the third time this month. He played nine special teams snaps in his Giants debut against the Eagles.

Harris was signed to the Giants' practice squad on Oct. 14 and elevated to the active roster three days later. He was in uniform but did not play when the Giants defeated Washington on Oct. 18. Harris reverted to the practice squad the day after that game, returned to the roster to play in Philadelphia and was sent back to the practice squad on Friday.

With the Miami Dolphins in 2019, Harris played in 11 games with three starts and recorded 22 tackles (16 solo), 1.5 sacks and one forced fumble.

Three players were signed to the practice squad: wide receiver Corey Coleman, defensive back Montre Hartage and tight end Rysen John.

Coleman was released on Sept. 6. He spent the entire 2019 season on injured reserve after tearing his ACL in the first training camp practice. In 2018, Coleman played in eight games with one start for the Giants and caught five passes for 71 yards and averaged 26.0 yards on 23 kickoff returns.

A 2016 first-round draft choice by the Cleveland Browns, Coleman has played in 27 career games with 19 starts and has 61 receptions for 789 yards and five touchdowns.

Hartage was released by the team on Sept. 9. He was awarded to the Giants off waivers on April 28, two days after he was cut by Miami. Hartage played four games for the Dolphins in 2019.

John, 6-7 and 237 pounds, was signed as a rookie free agent on April 30 from Simon Fraser University in British Columbia. He suffered a hamstring injury in training camp and was waived/injured on Sept. 2.

The Giants terminated the practice squad contract of center Javon Patterson.
