The winless New York Giants used a roster opening created when they waived running back Da’Rel Scott to add center Dallas Reynolds to an offensive line depleted by injuries.
Offensive linemen David Baas and Chris Snee both missed the Giants’ Sept. 29 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs due to injury and David Diehl hasn’t played this season as he recovers from thumb surgery. Snee probably will have season-ending surgery to repair an injured hip, the Star-Ledger of Newark, New Jersey, reported yesterday, citing unidentified people familiar with the guard’s situation.
Reynolds, 29, started 14 games at center last year with the Philadelphia Eagles after two seasons on the team’s practice squad, the Giants said in an e-mailed release yesterday.
A seventh-round selection by the Giants in the 2011 National Football League draft, Scott carried the ball a career-high 16 times this season for 56 yards, second on the team behind David Wilson. Scott also caught a touchdown pass in a loss to the Denver Broncos this year.
The Giants host the Eagles (1-3) on Oct. 6 at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey.
