To create room on the roster, the Giants waived linebacker Deontae Skinner.

McDermott was re-signed on Thursday to the practice squad, where he had been from Sept. 4 until his contract was terminated on Sept. 21. He was also on the squad for the final seven games of the 2015 season. McDermott played in the Giants’ first three preseason games this year. He has not played in an NFL regular-season game.

Skinner did two stints on the Giants’ practice squad this season before he was promoted to the active roster on Oct. 11. He was inactive for each of the last four games.

Quarterback Logan Thomas was re-signed to the practice squad.
