Giants put Thurmond, Jernigan on injured reserve

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) The New York Giants placed cornerback Walter Thurmond III and wide receiver Jerrel Jernigan on season-ending injured reserve Tuesday.

They were injured Sunday in New York's 25-14 home loss to the Arizona Cardinals.

Thurmond had surgery Tuesday to repair a torn pectoral muscle. Jernigan has a mid-foot sprain.

The Giants (0-2) filled the roster openings by signing wide receiver Julian Talley and linebacker Dan Fox off the practice squad. In other moves, New York terminated defensive end Jordan Stanton's contract from the practice squad and signed wide receivers Travis Harvey and L'Damian Washington and linebacker James Davidson to the practice squad.
