Giants LB Clint Sintim tore his ACL in the Giants' 21-3 win over the Vikings on Monday night and has been placed on injured reserve. DE Alex Hall was added to the active roster in his place.
Sintim, who was a second-round pick in 2009, will have surgery once the swelling in his knee goes down. He has primarily been playing on special teams.
Hall was drafted by the Browns in the seventh round of the '08 draft and remained in Cleveland through the '09 season. He has since had stints with the Eagles and Cardinals and returns to the Giants for the third time this year.
The Giants have also waived Joe Joseph from their practice squad and added LB Kenny Ingram.
The way we see it
Hall will primarily contribute on special teams, where Sintim saw most of his action.
