As anticipated, the New York Giants announced on Tuesday that second-year cornerback Sam Beal (hamstring) had been activated from injured reserve ahead of Wednesday’s 4 p.m. ET deadline.

In order to clear room for Beal on the 53-man roster, the Giants waived safety Sean Chandler.

Beal, a third-round pick in the 2018 NFL Supplemental Draft, missed his rookie season as the result of a shoulder injury, but initially returned healthy in 2019. However, after a solid portion to his spring, Beal suffered a hamstring injury that hampered him going into the season, ultimately landing him on IR with a designation to return.

Despite Beal’s presence, Giants head coach Pat Shurmur confirmed on Tuesday that rookie DeAndre Baker will remain one of the team’s starting cornerbacks.

“He’s out there competing and battling. He’s made great progress since the first time he stepped on the field and he’ll continue to do that. I think we all had mistakes last night and certainly he has to clean up his, but we’ll continue to encourage him to play well,” Shurmur said of Baker.

Upon his return, Beal will play on the outside as opposed to nickel, where rookie Corey Ballentine has taken over in place of Grant Haley.

Chandler, who signed with the Giants as an undrafted rookie out of Temple in 2018, was a surprise addition to the 53-man roster a year ago and certainly had some flashes. In 25 career games, he’s recorded 23 tackles, one sack, one pass defensed and one fumble recovery.
