The New York Giants are placing running back and special teams ace Gary Brightwell on injured reserve, according to Bleacher Report’s Jordan Schultz.
Brightwell, who’s been dealing with a hamstring injury, will miss at least the next four games, and he’s eligible to return in Week 12 against the New England Patriots.

Brightwell has not played an offensive snap since Week 4 and has only been used on special teams the past three games. He didn’t practice all this week due to a hamstring issue and was ruled out for this week’s game against the New York Jets on Sunday.
The Giants have added both Jashaun Corbin and Deon Jackson to the active roster to serve as running back depth behind Saquon Barkley and Matt Breida. Corbin is expected to be a candidate for punt returning duties in the wake of the injury to Eric Gray.
