Giants Promote Cornerback Fabian Moreau from Practice Squad

Plus, New York adds reinforcements at defensive back and receiver to their practice squad.

The New York Giants have promoted cornerback Fabian Moreau from their practice squad to the 53-man roster and have put receiver Sterling Shepard (knee) on injured reserve.

Moreau, 6-foot, 200 pounds, was a standard practice squad elevation for the Giants in the last two weeks. He's played in 56 total snaps, 32 in coverage, and has six tackles, one stop, and has allowed three pass completions (out of five targets) for 33 yards, 15 after the catch for a 79.6 NFL rating.

Moreau gives the Giants additional reinforcement at cornerback, where they currently have four defensive backs--Cor'Dale Flott (calf), Nick McCloud (hamstring), Justin Layne (concussion), and Aaron Robinson (appendectomy)--on the injury report.

The Giants also announced they signed wide receiver Makai Polk and defensive back Olaijah Griffin to their practice squad.
