Giants' David Mayo: Shifts to IR
The Giants placed Mayo (knee) on injured reserve Sunday, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports.
Mayo suffered a torn meniscus during training camp, so this transaction was an expected move by the club. The veteran will be a tough loss to begin the season, as he recorded 82 tackles and two sacks in 16 games (13 starts) for the Giants last season.
