EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ — A day before their first training camp practice, the Giants confirmed today the status and availability of nine players, none of whom will be on the field tomorrow.

Wide’s Jamison Crowder (Calf) will be sidelined with a non-football injury. The nine-year veteran Crowder was signed by the Giants on March 23. He caught six passes in four games with the Buffalo Bills last season before fracturing his ankle in Baltimore on Oct. 2.
Defensive tackle Vernon Butler was placed on reserve/not reported. Butler was signed to the Giants’ practice squad on November 15, 2022, and was elevated to the active roster on December 3. His only action in the game was in a 20-20 game with Washington the next day.
Cornerback Leonard Johnson (knee) was waived with the injury settled.
