Giants place C Weston Richburg on IR with concussion

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) The New York Giants have placed starting center Weston Richburg on injured reserve with a concussion.

The Giants announced Saturday that Richburg would miss his fourth straight game. Bret Jones has started for Richburg since he was hurt.

The team signed defensive back Tim Scott off its practice squad to take Richburg’s place on the roster for Sunday’s game against the Los Angeles Rams (5-2). New York (1-6) is short of defensive backs, with Janoris Jenkins suspended indefinitely for missing a workout Monday and fellow cornerback Donte Deayon nursing an ankle injury.
