Jaguars sign quarterback Ryan Nassib to active roster
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — The Jacksonville Jaguars have signed quarterback Ryan Nassib to the active roster, a move coach Doug Marrone said was insurance because Blake Bortles is dealing with a wrist injury.
A fourth-round draft pick by the New York Giants in 2013, Nassib was waived by New Orleans in final cuts. Nassib played three seasons (2013-15) for Jaguars decision-maker Tom Coughlin in New York and played collegiately for Marrone and offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett at Syracuse.

Giants’ Manning looking forward to playing against Browns
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — For the past two seasons, Eli Manning has felt a little awkward heading into the New York Giants' preseason opener.
It has nothing to do with the football. It's the lack of it that has bothered the two-time Super Bowl MVP.
Coach Ben McAdoo has sat Manning in the preseason opener the past two seasons and he has been forced to watch Ryan Nassib get the start last year and Josh Johnson get the call this year.
Lane Johnson returns to Eagles OL after suspension
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The Philadelphia Eagles get back their starting right tackle for Thursday night's game against the New York Giants.

New York Giants place Vereen, Nassib on injured reserve
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — The New York Giants have placed running back Shane Vereen and backup quarterback Ryan Nassib on injured reserve.
The Giants announced the moves Tuesday, a day after disclosing that Vereen had reinjured the triceps muscle that put him on injured reserve after the third week of the season. Nassib has had a recurring elbow injury this season.
Giants waive linebacker Brinkley, sign quarterback Johnson
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — The New York Giants have signed veteran quarterback Josh Johnson and terminated the contract of middle linebacker Jasper Brinkley.
The Giants announced the moves Monday as they began preparing for the season opener against Dallas.
The signing of Johnson gives New York three quarterbacks for the first time since 2013. He joins Eli Manning and backup Ryan Nassib.
Eli Manning is coming off a banner season with 35 touchdowns and just 14 picks. He's healthy and his command of the West Coast-style offense is no longer a concern. Often overlooked, Manning's durability displayed during his remarkable Ironman streak, 194 consecutive games and counting, is perhaps his greatest quality. That allows for backup Ryan Nassib's continued growing pains heading into the final season of his rookie contract.
EAST RUTHERFORD – Victor Cruz ran the best route of his comeback in the first quarter of the Giants’ 17-9 victory over the Patriots in their preseason finale Thursday night at MetLife Stadium.

Giants struggle on offense, especially up front
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — The New York Giants' offense has struggled in the preseason, and no group more than the line.

Giants won’t play Eli Manning in preseason opener
RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Quarterback Eli Manning won't play in the New York Giants' preseason opener against the Miami Dolphins.
Coach Ben McAdoo announced the decision Friday morning, hours before the game at MetLife Stadium.

Ryan Nassib, who has thrown 10 passes in his first three seasons with the Giants,...
