The New York Giants waived KR/PR/CB Will Blackmon from injured reserve, a source confirmed. The move was actually made on Saturday. Blackmon was placed on IR Dec. 30 with a knee injury. The team signed KR/CB Brian Witherspoon to take his place on the 53-man roster.
Blackmon signed with the Giants on Oct. 28. He played in five games and returned 14 punts for 94 yards, a 6.4-yard average, and 13 kickoffs for 238 yards, an 18.3-yard average. The return specialist missed two games earlier this season with a chest injury.
