Giants sign cornerback Mike Harris off Lions' practice squad, Beason placed on IR


EAST RUTHERFORD, New Jersey — The New York Giants have signed cornerback Mike Harris off the Detroit Lions' practice squad and placed middle linebacker Jon Beason on injured reserve.

The Giants announced the move on Wednesday, two days after saying that Beason would need season-ending surgery on his foot.

Harris spent the 2012-13 seasons with the Jacksonville Jaguars, playing in 31 games with seven starts.

The Giants have lost cornerbacks Walter Thurmond (pectoral) and Trumaine McBride (thumb) to season-ending injuries. Starter Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie is battling back and hamstring injuries heading into Monday night's game against the Indianapolis Colts.

New York also signed linebacker Justin Anderson to the practice squad and terminated the contract of linebacker Carlos Fields.
