The Giants announced Tuesday that they’ve placed DT Johnathan Hankins on season-ending injured reserve and promoted DT Montori Hughes off their practice squad.
The Giants also signed DT Louis Nix and LB Nico Johnson to their practice squad.
The 350-pound Hughes entered the league as a fifth-round pick of the Colts. He played in 16 games for them in 2013-14, but after being cut in the preseason, signed with the Giants’ practice squad.
Nix, a former third-round pick of the Texans, has bounced on and off the Giants roster this season, since being awarded on waivers in September.
