EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. – The Giants announced late Friday they have activated linebacker David Mayo off injured reserve.
Mayo is expected to make his 2020 debut Sunday when the Giants host the Washington Football Team in MetLife Stadium.
The sixth-year pro and second-year Giant was placed on I.R. on Sept. 6, soon after undergoing surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his left knee, an injury he suffered in training camp.
Mayo joined the Giants six days prior to the 2019 season and played in all 16 games, including starts in each of the last 13 contests. He tied for second on the team with a career-best 80 tackles (50 solo), including his first two career sacks.
Mayo will join an inside linebacker rotation of Blake Martinez, Devante Downs and rookies Tae Crowder and TJ Brunson. Martinez is the Giants' leading tackler, and Crowder made his first career start last week in Dallas.
