Harrison began training camp on the PUP list and he started off slow in his return to action, though he came up big in the
Harrison (knee) was removed from the PUP list Tuesday, The Record's Art Stapleton reports.
Harrison missed the first few days of training camp due to some minor swelling in his knee. Despite signing a five-year, $46.5 million contract in the offseason, the run-stuffing nose tackle is highly unlikely to have any IDP value. He should, however, provide a much-needed boost to his new team's run defense.
The injury isn't considered to be serious and the defensive tackle shouldn't be out for an extended period of time. Fellow defensive tackle Jay Bromley (ankle) is also on the PUP list, meaning first-team reps will go to Montori Hughes and Greg Milhouse to open up training camp.
Damon Harrison agreed to a five-year, $46.5 million deal with the New York Giants on Wednesday, Jordan Raanan of NJ Advance Media reports.
With the Jets in a salary cap bind, Harrison took the Giants' substantial contract offer Wednesday and will be a member of their defensive front for years to come. Harrison was the anchor of a loaded Jets defensive front that included Muhammad Wilkerson and rookie phenom Leonard Williams in 2015 and should make an immediate impact up the middle for a Giants defense that was underwhelming at every level last season.
