EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Rookie cornerback Grant Haley could not have picked a better time to be elevated from the practice squad to the New York Giants' roster.
The Giants (1-5) are heading to Atlanta to play the Falcons (2-4) on Monday night.
It's home for Haley and he is going to see the women who inspires him — his mother, Dr. Carla Neal-Haley. She is a pediatrician, an internist and a battler.
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — The New York Giants have signed former Denver Broncos receiver Bennie Fowler and placed linebacker Ray-Ray Armstrong and wide receiver Cody Latimer on injured reserve.
The moves were among a number made by the Giants (1-5) on Tuesday as they returned to practice after a long weekend following a Thursday night game against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Here's what to watch in the Big Ten this week:
STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) — It'll likely go down as the most memorable play of his collegiate career, but Grant Haley has no desire to rewatch his game-sealing touchdown against Ohio State from a year ago.
Although Haley's fourth-quarter, 60-yard return of a blocked field goal sparked Penn State's national rise, the soft-spoken Atlanta native believes he's earned a reputation as more than "that Ohio State kid" as he's been called by fans he runs into.
STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) — Amani Oruwariye is used to people butchering his last name.
The Penn State cornerback figures the more highlight-reel interceptions he has, the more practice people will get.
"We made a big emphasis on making plays on the ball this offseason and I think it's going to pay off," Oruwariye said. "We feel like if we can take the ball away and give it back to our great offense then we've got a great chance to win games."
STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) — The white out in the stands became the white out on the field as Penn State fans mobbed their Nittany Lions. Well after the biggest victory of the post-Joe Paterno era was over, the cries of "We Are! Penn State!" echoed underneath 56-year-old Beaver Stadium and bounced off its big rusty metal beams.
It felt like the good ol' days for Penn State football and Happy Valley was downright ecstatic Saturday night after the Nittany Lions upset No. 2 Ohio State 24-21.
