The New York Giants have officially announced the signing of offensive lineman Justin Pugh to their practice squad. Pugh, a former first-round pick, has started 119 games in his career and is now healthy after tearing his ACL last year with the Cardinals. The Giants released running back Taiwan Jones from the practice squad to make room for Pugh. Pugh will be working with trainers to assess his physical condition as he is coming off ACL surgery. The Giants signed Pugh to help their struggling offensive line, which allowed 11 sacks in their previous game. This move highlights the team's ongoing struggle to fix their offensive line problem, which has been a weak point for the past decade.
