Deayon (forearm) was officially placed on injured reserve Monday, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports.
Deayon broke his right forearm in last Thursday's loss to the Redskins, so this move was a mere formality. The rookie cornerback was one of four players placed on injured reserve by the Giants on Monday.
Deayon was diagnosed with a broken right forearm after exiting Thursday's 20-10 loss to the Redskins, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports.
Deayon also injured his jaw in the contest, but the broken forearm is the greater concern for the first-year cornerback, whose season is most likely over. The Boise State product has made four appearances for the Giants in 2017, collecting 10 tackles and one pass breakup.
Deayon went down late in the third quarter. The severity of his injury is not known at this time. He had recorded two solo tackles and a pass defended prior to exiting the game.
Deayon (ankle) won't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against the Chiefs.
Deayon missed the last two games with the ankle injury and was a limited participant in practice this week, but the team was apparently limiting his reps as a precaution. The 23-year-old isn't guaranteed to be active regardless, given the current health of the rest of the Giants' secondary.
