Giants' LB Boley reinstated Tuesday

Posted by ESPN.com's Matt Mosley

Giants linebacker Michael Boley has been reinstated and he'll be ready to play against the Cowboys on Sunday night. Will he start? Well, Chase Blackburn played really, really well against the Redskins last Sunday. But Boley's the big money guy, so I think he'll be starting sooner than later.

In other news, the Giants signed running back Gartrell Johnson, who was released by the San Diego Chargers. Johnson was a fourth-round pick out of Colorado State and I'm sure the Chargers were hoping to sneak him onto their practice squad. He'll become the third running back in the absense of Danny Ware (dislocated elbow).

The Giants also released defensive tackle Leger Douzable and offensive lineman Tutan Reyes. They also made several moves on the practice squad. More on that later.
