The Giants waived McLaurin on Tuesday, Dan Duggan of The Athletic reports McLaurin spent his 2019 rookie season on injured reserve after fracturing his foot before even suiting up for a preseason game. He faced unlikely odds to make the final roster anyway after the Giants made multiple linebacker additions this offseason.
McLaurin (foot) may have a tough time making the Giants' season-opening roster, Zack Rosenblatt of NJ.com reports. The 23-year-old suffered a broken foot early in training camp last year and spent the entire season on injured reserve. McLaurin joined the Giants as a UDFA in May 2019 but enters training camp in 2020 with minimal experience due to the injury.
McLaurin was diagnosed with a fracture in his foot after he was stepped on in practice Saturday, Tom Rock of Newsday reports. McLaurin left practice Saturday with an undisclosed injury, and that injury finally came to light. The team didn't give any timetable for his return, but the expectation is that he'll be out indefinitely. He signed as an undrafted free agent this offseason, and compiled 64 total tackles and forced a fumble in his senior season with Mississippi State.
McLaurin signed a contract with the Giants on Thursday. McLaurin went undrafted out of Mississippi State, but he'll get his first NFL opportunity in New York.
