Armbrister was reverted to IR after clearing waivers in late August. The 25-year-old defensive tackle has 30 games under his belt but hasn't appeared in a contest since 2016, when he posted 15 tackles for the Lions.
Armbrister (undisclosed) cleared waivers Tuesday and shifted to injured reserve.
It's unclear what Armbrister is dealing with. If he reaches an injury settlement with the Giants, Armbrister will be able to sign elsewhere. If that happens, he'll be limited to a special teams role, as the 24-year-old hasn't played an NFL snap since 2016.
Armbrister will not suit up for Friday's preseason game against the Lions due to an undisclosed injury.
Armbrister last saw the field with Detroit in 2016, appearing in all 16 games. However, he was waived by the Lions last season and never found a home. He likely sits on the outside looking in for a 53-man roster spot this preseason as well, so missing time with an injury doesn't help his chances.
