EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) -Wide receiver David Tyree was placed on the physically-unable-to-perform reserve list by the New York Giants on Tuesday, meaning the player who made a game-saving catch in the Super Bowl won't be making any for at least the first six weeks of the season.
Tyree, whose spectacular one-handed catch against his helmet sparked the Giants' late game-winning drive against the previously unbeaten New England Patriots, has not practiced since training camp opened in July because he is rehabilitating a surgically repaired right knee. He had surgery in May.
The Giants can take Tyree off the PUP list any time from the first day after the sixth week of the season until the last day of the ninth week. Once he is taken off the list, he has 21 days to either be activated or he is finished for the season.
The move was expected with the Giants set to open the season at home against Washington a week from Thursday.
``At one point I argued with the decision, but I am still about three weeks away,'' Tyree said. ``I have been running routes and I have not had any drawbacks which is good.''
Tyree had four catches for 35 yards and no touchdowns in 12 regular-season games last season. He added four catches for 47 yards and a TD (in the Super Bowl) in the postseason.
The one everyone remembers was in the fourth quarter of the title game.
Eli Manning somehow escaped the clutches of would-be sackers and heaved a pass 32 yards downfield that Tyree snares, pinning it against his helmet while falling to the ground with safety Rodney Harrison draped all over him.
The Giants on Tuesday also waived receiver Michael Jennings and waived safety Terrance Stringer from the injured list. Safety Craig Dahl was waived injured on Monday. Receiver D.J. Hall and safety Miguel Scott were also waived.
New York signed linebacker James Terry and acquired receiver Marcus Monk on waivers from Chicago.
