Giants place RB Brandon Jacobs on IR

AP - Sports

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) -- The New York Giants have placed running back Brandon Jacobs on season-ending injured reserve, two days after a knee injury kept him out for a second straight game.

Jacobs finished the season with 238 yards rushing and four touchdowns - most among Giants running backs - and two receptions for 13 yards in seven games.

New York also signed linebacker Marcus Dowtin from the practice squad on Tuesday night, terminated the practiced squad contract of linebacker Darin Drakeford, and singed defensive end Kendrick Adams and defensive back Chaz Powell to the practice squad.
