EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — The New York Giants have put starting left tackle Will Beatty on the reserve/physically unable to perform list in reducing their roster to 74 players.
The team also announced Tuesday that safeties Bennett Jackson (knee) and Josh Gordy (hip) were placed on injured reserve, and that 11 others players were waived.
Beatty, who is a York High graduate, tore a pectoral muscle in May and has not been able to take part in training camp. He was placed on the physically unable to perform list at the start of training camp and the designation means he must sit out at least the first six games of the regular season.
Those released included offensive linemen Brandon Mosley (injured/back) and Eric Herman, draft picks in 2012. Two other veterans were released, receiver Juron Criner and punter Robert Malone.
The others cut were rookies or first-year pros: running back Akeem Hunt (injured/hamstring); receiver Derrick Johnson; tight end Wi ll Tye, offensive lineman Michael Bamiro; defensive linemen Jordan Stanton and Jimmy Staten and safety Justin Halley.
