by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okwara was waived by the Giants on Tuesday, Michael Eisen of reports.

Okwara was waived in order to make room for former Bears defensive tackle John Jenkins on the roster.

However, he does boast starting experience and could find a new home elsewhere in the league in the near future.

Giants' Romeo Okwara: Knee injury mars 2017 campaign
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okwara made three tackles (one solo) in six games during the 2017 regular season.

Okwara's sophomore campaign was hindered by a knee sprain that left him sidelined for a solid chunk of the season, as he ultimately missed 10 games before returning for the finale against Washington. The reserve defensive end will be on the last year of his rookie contract in 2018 and should once again provide depth behind Olivier Vernon and Jason Pierre-Paul.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Giants activated Okwara from injured reserve Tuesday, Michael Eisen of the Giants' official site reports.

Okwara is thus in line to play in the Giants' final two games of the season after the team designated the defensive end as one of two players eligible to return from IR. The 22-year-old, who was shut down in mid-October after suffering a knee sprain during practice, had collected three tackles in five games. He'll likely work in a rotational role at defensive end behind starters Olivier Vernon and Jason Pierre-Paul.

Giants' Romeo Okwara: Designated for return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Giants designated Okwara to return from injured reserve Tuesday.

Okwara will resume practicing Wednesday and is thus a candidate to rejoin the 53-man roster beginning in Week 15 against the Eagles. So long as starting defensive ends Jason Pierre-Paul and Olivier Vernon both remain healthy the rest of the way, however, Okwara won't be anything more than a rotational defensive lineman for the Giants.
