But the biggest move clearly is Canty. Ever since Canty wasn't ready to practice at the start of camp, the defensive tackle was in danger of missing the beginning of the season.
The Giants will now have to wait until mid-October at the earliest for Canty to return. It's quite possible that Canty may not be ready to play until November if the team eases him back into the mix. They'll have to play Dallas, Tampa Bay, Carolina, Philadelphia, Cleveland and San Francisco at the very least without their starting defensive tackle for the past two seasons.
Who backs those two up remains to be seen with Austin sidelined. The team will cut its roster down to 53 on Friday and Marcus Thomas, seventh-round pick Markus Kuhn and Dwayne Hendricks all have a chance to make the final roster. Kuhn has impressed the coaching staff in the preseason.
As for Beckum, he is still recovering from a torn ACL suffered in the Super Bowl. The Giants will move forward with Bear Pascoe and Martellus Bennett as their starting tight ends. Larry Donnell and fourth-round pick Adrien Robinson are still on the roster and it will be interesting to see what they do on Friday with those two.
Tell us below what you think of Canty and Beckum going on the PUP.
