Nassib will have surgery on his elbow in the near future, Seth Walder of the New York Daily News reports.
Nassib contended with elbow soreness at various points in the season, and with two games remaining, the Giants will look toward to future and a likely playoff berth. No matter if that goal is realized, Nassib will yield backup QB duties to Josh Johnson moving forward.
Nassib (elbow) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, ESPN.com's Jordan Raanan reports.
Nassib has been bothered by a sore elbow for much of the past two months, and with the quarterback apparently not showing enough improvement, he'll be shut down for the final two weeks of the season. Josh Johnson will continue to serve as the backup to starting quarterback Eli Manning the rest of the way.

Nassib (elbow) is inactive for Sunday's matchup against the Eagles, Ralph Vacchiano of SNY.TV reports.
Nassib has been dealing with elbow soreness, and after being unable to participate in pregame warmups, the team will make him inactive for the afternoon matchup. As a result, Josh Johnson, who hasn't completed a pass since 2011, will step into the backup quarterback role.
Nassib completed 7 of 15 passes for 75 yards with no touchdowns and two interceptions in Friday's 27-10 preseason loss to the Dolphins. He also gained 12 yards on three carries and lost a fumble.
With Eli Manning getting the night off, Nassib received extended action and provided a mixed bag of a performance. Nassib got off to a positive start, leading the Giants on a game-opening touchdown drive but subsequently turning the ball over on three consecutive second-quarter possessions. The third-year signal-caller sandwiched interceptions to Bobby McCain and A.J. Hendy around a fumble on a scramble that was returned by Spencer Paysinger to the Dolphins' five-yard line, setting up a Damien Williams touchdown. The 26-year-old is expected to continue to see extended action throughout the preseason.
