The FB being activated is Shane Smith. Move likely made to help special teams more than anything,
Also per Cimini ESPN former Giants CB Michael Hunter to Jets PSQ

The Jets have signed rookie WR/PR JoJo Natson from their practice squad. He's expected to be active tomorrow against the Bucs. The 5-foot-7 Natson played for the Colts in the preseason and racked up 180 receiving yards, 155 yards on kickoff returns and 64 yards on punt returns. To make room, they released DT Ed Stinson, whom they re-signed only a few days ago. They also signed CB Michael Hunter to the practice squad.

be surprised if someone didn't pick up LaCosse. I don't know what we're doing.

Defenderdawg. I just deleted my thread.
If LaCosse is picked up I would be surprised...  
fredgbrown : 11/11/2017 1:49 pm : link
He will be available if they want to bring him back next training camp.
More re-arranging the deck chairs on the Titanic.

Why not use a FB? under coughlin we used to do a lot of play action out of those packages as well.

I think McAdoo is coming around to seeing that they HAVE to be a run first team since all the WRs are on IR. Who is left to carry the Giants offense? Thus Smith was brought back to help the ground game.
This team is Clueless....

1-7 what is the need for a FB  
Mike Graves : 11/11/2017 6:14 pm : link
Who was already cut? Why not keep and play LaCoose who did well in pre season how the hell does smith help this team?? This is a time we should be evaluating guys for next year LaCoose looked good in the pre season i was looking forward to seeing him getting some playing time the next few weeks smh
NikkiMac : 11/11/2017 6:41 pm : link
You guys act like we let go Jimmy Graham .....Lacosse JAG hasn’t done anything and last week missed many blocks better off with the fullback!!!!!!
At this point, with the season lost , why not ?  
Manny in CA : 11/11/2017 8:28 pm : link

Reshuffle the chairs ? I'd switch Pugh to LT and Flowers to RT, see if that makes any difference.

Smith to fullback is a plus, I think (if even a little one).
Reese clusterfixes  
DavidinBMNY : 11/11/2017 9:10 pm : link
One of Reeses biggest issues is he cluster attention to a position in an unbalanced way potentially fixing a roster issue but leaving holes elsewhere.

Look at TE. He gets Adam, Ellison and Engram. Lacosse had potential but had been injures.

Then look at cb. Jenkins and Apple
Doomster : 11/12/2017 8:08 am : link
is one of BBI's favorites....has done nothing.....but don't worry....he will be available next year....again.....
As for Smith,  
Doomster : 11/12/2017 8:16 am : link
his main purpose is to block, which he seems to suck this point in the season, there are no big moves, just shuffling of bodies due to injury.....

whatever the change, it seems to be viewed negatively and that the decision makers are venal or incompetent.

Enough already.
