EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. – The Giants today flipped tight ends, signing Garrett Dickerson from their practice squad and placing Scott Simonson on injured reserve.
Simonson suffered a concussion last week in Washington.
Dickerson joins rookie Kaden Smith as the team's available tight ends for the season finale tomorrow against Philadelphia in MetLife Stadium. He played in three games early this season, most recently on Nov. 10 at New England, and four in his rookie season in 2018. Dickerson does not have a regular-season reception.
He was waived on Oct. 22 and signed to the practice squad on Nov. 12 – the day Simonson was added to the active roster.
Simonson is the second tight end to go on injured reserve in as many days. He joins Rhett Ellison, who also has a concussion.
Since his return, Simonson played in five games with one start. He caught two passes for 11 yards.
Simonson is the answer to a trivia question: who is the only player to catch passes from all three quarterbacks on the Giants' 2019 roster? Last season, he caught nine from Eli Manning and this year he grabbed one each from Daniel Jones and Alex Tanney. The latter was Tanney's only completion in his two seasons with the Giants.
