From the Associated Press:
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) The New York Giants have placed backup linebacker Gerris Wilkinson on injured reserve with a wrist injury.
The Giants announced the move Wednesday and signed cornerback D.J. Johnson off the Denver Broncos practice squad to fill out the roster.
Wilkinson was hurt in Sunday's 21-20 loss to the San Diego Chargers. He had surgery on Monday. He was leading the Giants with 12 tackles on special teams.
Johnson is a rookie out of Jackson State. He was signed as a free agent by the Broncos in April.
