Giants Reduce Roster to 80


They must cut another 27 players from the roster tomorrow.

In today's moves, linebacker Clint Sintim was placed on injured reserve and four players were waived – cornerback Darnell Burks, wide receiver Todd Watkins, guard Brant Clouser and defensive tackle Ibrahim Abdulai

Sintim, a third-year pro, tore the anterior cruciate ligament and patellar tendon in his right knee in last night's 18-17 preseason-ending victory over the Patriots in New England.

The four players who were waived were all free agents. Burks, Clouser and Abdulai are rookies and Watkins is a third-year pro.

Tuesday was the deadline for most NFL teams to reduce their rosters to 80 players. The Giants and Jets were given three-day extensions by the NFL because they played Monday night, 48 hours later than scheduled because of Hurricane Irene.

All teams are required to be at the regular season roster limit of 53 by 6 p.m. tomorrow.
