Giants promote Dwayne Hendricks from practice squad to active roster

Throughout the week, Giants coach Tom Coughlin deflected questions about who he will fill Jimmy Kennedy's spot on the active roster while Kennedy serves a four-game suspension.

The answer came today, when the team promoted long-time squad practice squad member Dwayne Hendricks, a defensive tackle from Millville.
Hendricks, 25, was signed by the Giants as an undrafted free agent out of Miami in 2009. e spent 10 weeks in 2009 on the practice squad, seven weeks last season and was signed to the practice squad again this year after failing to make the team out of the preseason.

Hendricks played in all four preseason games this year, including a start in the finale at New England. He had five tackles (four solo), a sack and a forced fumble.

Hendricks was inactive for the Giants versus the Bills on Sunday.
