Mihalik will be elevated to the Giants' 53-man roster from the practice squad Tuesday, Dan Duggan of The Athletic reports.
Mihalik's roster spot opened up after the Giants announced they will either trade or cut fellow offensive tackle Ereck Flowers. The Boston College product will likely become a depth tackle after receiving his promotion.
Mihalik (illness) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Bengals.
Mihalik was originally considered questionable to play due to some sort of illness. His availability Sunday is a fortunate development for a Lions offensive line that will be without T.J. Lang (foot) and Rick Wagner (ankle).

Mihalik, who re-signed with the Lions shortly after being waived in early October, just popped up on the injury report Friday. His potential absence would thin the depth of an offensive line that could already be missing T.J. Lang (foot) and Rick Wagner (ankle), not to mention starting center Travis Swanson (concussion), who's already been ruled out.
Mihalik was waived by the Lions on Saturday, ESPN's Adam Caplan reports.
Mihalik was signed by Detroit just two days ago. Mihalik has yet to make his NFL debut.
Mihalik has signed with the Lions, the team announced Thursday.
Mihalik suffered an MCL injury earlier this year against the Lions and was ultimately released by the Steelers as a result. A defensive end in college that was converted to an offensive tackle in Pittsburgh, Mihalik has yet to see much on-field action.
Mihalik (undiscosed) was designated as waived/injured by the Steelers on Sunday.
The nature of his injury is undisclosed. If the 6-foot and 9-inch, 302-pound behemoth clears waivers, though, the Steelers will likely stash him on injured reserve.
The Eagles have announced that they have signed three of their draft picks. Included are second-rounder and cornerback Eric Rowe, sixth-rounder and cornerback Randall Evans and seventh-rounder and defensive end Brian Mihalik.
