The New York Giants have activated tight end Travis Beckum, making him eligible to play when they host the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday.
The fourth-year pro tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee during the Giants' win over New England in Super Bowl XLVI. He was placed on the reserve/physically unable to perform list and missed all of training camp before returning to the practice field Oct. 24.
A third-round draft choice in 2009, Beckum has played in 44 regular-season games. He has 26 receptions for 264 yards and three touchdowns.
To make room on their roster, the Giants waived offensive lineman Mitch Petrus.
A third-year pro, Petrus was waived by the Giants Sept. 1, but was resigned the following day. He's played in three games this season, primarily on special teams. He was inactive for two other games.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- In a game billed as the battle of two first-round quarterbacks from the Class of 2004, the Steelers' Ben Roethlisberger outlasted the Giants' Eli Manning by copying Manning's fourth-quarter comeback act to steer Pittsburgh to a 24-20 win over New York at MetLife Stadium. The Giants (6-3) saw their four-game winning streak end, and Manning'...
