Giants' Darrian Beavers: Hits IR
Beavers (knee) was placed on the Giants' injured reserve Tuesday, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.
This transaction should officially sideline Beavers for the entirety of his rookie season with the Giants. The sixth-round pick out of Cincinnati was expected to serve a key backup role in coordinator Don Martindale's defense after registering an impressive performance during training camp, so his loss should lead to increased opportunities for Quincy Roche, Cam Brown and Oshane Ximines this regular season....

Giants' Darrian Beavers: Impressing during camp
Beavers has impressed during camp and will likely be a key backup for the Giants this season, Darryl Slater of NJ Advance Media reports.
In the preseason opener against New England on Thursday, Beavers started in place of Blake Martinez, who is being brought along slowly after missing almost all of last season due to a torn ACL. The rookie made three solo tackles in the exhibition contest, including one for a loss. He wasn't selected until the sixth round in this year's draft, but he's already being looked at as a future candidate to lead the team's defense, according to Ryan Dunleavy of the New York Post.

Giants' Darrian Beavers: Picked up by G-Men
The Giants selected Beavers in the sixth round of the 2022 NFL Draft, 182nd overall.
Beavers is yet another player drafted off the Cincinnati defense. He played five seasons in college, including two at Connecticut, and turned into a tackling machine late in his career. Beavers had 99 tackles (12 TFL) and 5.0 sacks as a senior. Beavers checks in at 6-foot-3 and 237 pounds and turned in an impressive showing at the combine. He's long-limbed but is still a fluid mover with good change of direction chops and an ability to close on the ball carrier. Beavers can play anywhere in New York's linebacking corps.... See More ...
