Giants S Michael Johnson placed on injured reserve
New York Giants safety Michael Johnson has been placed on
injured reserve because of a herniated disk in his back.
Defensive back Brian Jackson was promoted from the practice
squad Tuesday to take his place on the roster.
A seventh-round draft pick in 2007 out of Arizona, Johnson
started 14 games last season. He played the first two games this
season then was inactive last week.
Jackson is an undrafted free agent out of Oklahoma. He
originally signed with the Jets and played in all four of their
preseason games before being waived Sept. 7.
