New York Giants place Corey Webster on injured reserve

The New York Giants posted another injury-driven transaction on their website, Giants.com, yesterday when the team announced that it had placed veteran cornerback Corey Webster on the season ending injured-reserve list. Webster saw action in only four games this season, over separate two-game spans.

Webster started the first two games of the 2013 NFL season, but then missed the next four contests with what were categorized as hip/groin issues. He then came back for two more games against the Minnesota Vikings and Philadelphia Eagles in October.

After the Eagles game, Webster's name continually showed up on the injury report with an ankle injury, and he did not dress for the Giants' last six contests.

It is most probably the end of the road for Webster at least in a Giants uniform. A former second round pick in 2005 NFL draft, Webster played his college ball at LSU. He became a full-time starter in 2008 and was a member of the Giants two recent championship squads.

Webster restructured his existing contract to remain with the team in 2013, and he also has an option for next season that New York is likely to void at this point.

To replace Webster on the 53-man roster, the G-men signed wide receiver Julian Talley off of their practice squad. Talley, who was a college teammate of Victor Cruz, had spent training camp with New York.

According to Michael Eisen at Giants.com, "Talley, 6-1 and 192 pounds, has spent the entire season on the practice squad. He was signed by the Giants on Aug. 1, waived on Aug. 31 and signed to the practice squad on Sept. 1. Talley had seven receptions for 98 yards in the preseason."

Talley may see action right away against the Detroit Lions, as both Victor Cruz and Jerrel Jernigan are likely to show up on this week's injury report for New York.
