The New York Giants placed center J.C. Hassenauer on injured reserve and signed free agent interior offensive lineman Sean Harlow, who spent the past two seasons with the Arizona Cardinals.
"He'll be out long term," coach Brian Daboll said Monday about Hassenauer, who signed with the Giants in April after three years in Pittsburgh. "He got a tricep. He's going to end up having surgery, which is too bad."
The 6-foot-4, 284-pound Harlow was originally a fourth-round pick in 2017 by the Atlanta Falcons. He appeared in one game for them in 2019 before signing with the Cardinals in 2021. Overall, he has appeared in 33 regular-season games and made eight starts – five at left guard and three at center. Harlow also played in one postseason game in 2021.
Harlow started 37 games at Oregon State, where he earned second-team All Pac-12 honors and served as team captain as a senior in 2016. He helped the Beavers set a single-season record with 5.2 yards per carry.
His father, Pat, was selected 11th overall by the New England Patriots in the 1991 NFL Draft and played eight seasons in the NFL with New England and Oakland.
Hassenauer, undrafted out of Alabama, played in 45 regular-season games with seven starts for the Steelers from 2020-2022. He also started one postseason game.
