The Giants today signed linebacker Deontae Skinner off their practice squad and waived offensive lineman Shane McDermott, essentially reversing a transaction they made two weeks ago.

On Nov. 19, McDermott was added to the roster because linemen Justin Pugh and Brett Jones were injured and would miss the following day’s game vs. Chicago. The status of guard Adam Gettis was also uncertain. Skinner was waived and signed to the practice squad on Monday, Nov. 21.

McDermott played briefly in the last two games. But Marshall Newhouse and Gettis, who started the last two games, respectively, at left guard, are healthier, as is Jones.

Skinner did two stints on the Giants’ practice squad early this season before he was promoted to the active roster on Oct. 11. He was inactive for four games before his Nov. 19 release.
