EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- The New York Giants waived running back Da'Rel Scott to create a roster spot for offensive lineman Dallas Reynolds.
Reynolds, a 14-game starter for the Philadelphia Eagles last season, fortifies a Giants offensive line that has been ravaged by injuries through an 0-4 start. He was originally signed by the Eagles as an undrafted rookie in 2009, and played all 16 games in 20012.
Giants starting center David Baas missed last week's game with a neck injury and right guard Chris Snee has a hip injury that reportedly could sideline him for the remainder of the season. Offensive lineman David Diehl has not played yet this season due to a thumb injury.
Scott is the Giants' second-leading rusher this season and made his first career start last Sunday, finishing with 26 yards on five carries. His 56 yards on the season are second on the Giants to David Wilson's 130.
The Giants have running backs Wilson, Brandon Jacobs and rookie Michael Cox on the roster, with Andre Brown eligible to return from his broken leg Nov. 10 against the Oakland Raiders.
--Wide receiver Marcus Harris was signed to the practice squad, with offensive lineman Steven Baker having his contract terminated.
