LONDON (AP) Robbie Gould has become the second placekicker to join the New York Giants on short notice, with Josh Brown again ineligible to play after admitting to abusing his wife.
Gould arrived in England on Friday and took part in a short workout Saturday. The Giants play the Los Angeles Rams in London on Sunday.
Brown was placed on the NFL's ''exempt list'' Friday while the league investigates whether he should be suspended further for several alleged acts of spousal abuse. The Giants left him home after police released journals and emails in which he admitted to abusing his former wife.

Gould was cut by the Chicago Bears in September. He was getting ready to take his son to a swimming lesson in Chicago when the Giants telephoned and told him to pack his bags.
He says he's excited about the opportunity to play again.
