Giants sign DT Dwayne Hendricks to 54-man roster

– The New York Giants have signed defensive tackle Dwayne

Hendricks to their 53-man roster.

Hendricks takes the spot that opened when the NFL suspended

defensive tackle Jimmy Kennedy for four games for violating the

league’s policy on performance enhancing substances.

The Giants announced the move Saturday, a day before their game

against the Buffalo Bills at MetLife Stadium.

Hendricks spent the first five weeks of the season on the

Giants’ practice squad, a spot he also had most of last season.
