EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — The New York Giants placed long snapper Zak DeOssie and tight end Larry Donnell on injured reserve on Tuesday

The Giants also signed long snapper Danny Aiken and cornerback Tramain Jacobs to fill the open roster spots.

DeOssie has a wrist injury. He had played in 140 consecutive games,

Donnell has missed the last four games with a neck injury.

Aiken played in 63 regular-season games and 10 postseason games for the New England Patriots. The Patriots did not re-sign him after last spring.

Jacobs was signed from the Giants' practice squad. He was promoted from the practice squad earlier this season and played in two games on special teams.

The Giants also signed cornerback Leon McFadden and tackle Jake Rodgers to the practice squad.

McFadden was signed by the Giants off the Arizona Cardinals' practice squad on Oct. 21, and played in the team's next two games, vs. Dallas and at New Orleans. He was inactive for three games before he was waived last Saturday.

A seventh-round draft pick, Rodgers was waived by Atlanta before the start of the season.
