EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - The Giants today placed rookie defensive lineman D.J. Davidson on injured reserve with a season-ending knee injury.
The fifth-round selection from Arizona State tore his ACL on a Green Bay punt in the third quarter of the Giants' 27-22 victory against the Packers Sunday in London.
Davidson had played in each of the Giants' first five games, participating in 43 snaps as a reserve on defense and 43 on special teams. He was credited with four tackles (two solo) on defense.
Davidson is the third 2022 Giants draft choice to go on injured reserve with a torn ACL, joining tackle Marcus McKethan (fifth round) and linebacker Darrian Beavers (sixth).
The Giants did not immediately announce a replacement for Davidson on the roster. They have two defensive linemen on their practice squad. Henry Mondeaux was elevated to the active roster and hurt his ankle vs. Chicago on Oct. 2, and rookie free agent Ryder Anderson.
