Giants wide receiver Jerrel Jernigan has been placed on season-ending injured reserve with a foot sprain, Conor Orr of the Newark Star-Ledger reports.
Jernigan, whose contract ends at the end of the season, could have played his last snap as a member of the Giants.
Since 2011, Jernigan has played in 34 games, catching 38 passes for 391 yards and two touchdowns. The team thought their 2011 third-round pick was finally coming around when he caught 19 passes for 237 yards and a pair of touchdowns in the team’s final three games last season.
In Jernigan’s place, the team called up Julian Talley from the practice squad. Talley, who played alongside Victor Cruz at UMass, played in a handful of games with the Giants last season.

Giants quarterback Eli Manning has had to learn new offensive this offeseason. It has been a good challenge Manning said according to Kevin Armstrong of the New York Daily News.
“It’s reenergized me,” he said. “I’m trying to speed up the process of getting comfortable in the new system. I don’t have 10 years. I have a few months.”
Eli Manning intends to improve his numbers from last season, a disappointing stretch in his career. He also recognizes the urgency of learning Bob McAdoo’s system after spending 10 years under previous coordinator Kevin Gilbride. Despite two Super Bowl victories in that decade, Manning maintains that he is inspired to return to form in 2014
There are 10 days left before camp now. Manning plans to work out over the next week, review the offense and fine-tune his throwing motion. He suffered a high left ankle sprain in the 2013 season finale, and underwent arthroscopic surgery on April 10. He insisted that he was fine and did not have limits during offseason workouts.
The 90-degree heat finally broke Friday afternoon after a lightning storm. Manning noted that he wears no helmet or pads during the passing academy, and that the East Rutherford dog days and an opportunity at a redemptive season stand before him.
“I kind of like getting in this heat,” he said. “It’s a good warmup.”
