Giants placed WR Kris Adams (leg) on the reserve/PUP list.
Adams was waived/injured and won't count toward the Giants' 90-man roster. The move rules him out for the first six games of the regular season, though Adams isn't more than a camp body or No. 6 receiver. Adams is recovering from a severe leg/ankle injury suffered last preseason. Fri, Jun 13, 2014 06:06:00 PM

Giants waived WR Kris Adams.

Adams suffered a severe leg/ankle injury last preseason. The Giants see more long-range potential in UDFA wideouts Travis Harvey and Corey Washington.

Giants waived/injured WR Kris Adams and signed WR Marcus Harris.

Harris will replace Adams as a camp body. Adams suffered what appeared to be a fractured lower leg and dislocated ankle in Saturday's preseason opener.

Giants WR Kris Adams suffered a fractured lower leg in Saturday night's preseason opener.

Adams' foot also appeared to separate from the ankle socket. It's a definite year-ending injury for Adams, a big-bodied straight-line speedster out of UTEP. He'll likely be waived/injured this week.

Giants signed WR Kris Adams and CB Antonio Dennard to reserve/future contracts.

Adams caught two passes for 26 yards in three games with the Colts this season. The former UTEP star hauled in five passes for 90 yards in preseason action. He's a long shot to make the Giants' roster in 2013.

Colts released WR Kris Adams.

Adams was essentially a practice body. The Colts also promoted T Tony Hills from the practice squad. This move suggests the Colts had concerns about their offensive line being too thin for Sunday's tilt against the Packers.

Colts signed WR Kris Adams, formerly of the Vikings.

Adams (6'3/194) will be a big, long practice body for training camp. The former UDFA out of UTEP has already spent time with Minnesota and Chicago.

Vikings waived WR Kris Adams.

An undrafted free agent out of UTEP last season, Adams was signed to a reserve/future deal in January. The fact that he was waived at this stage of the offseason suggests he'll struggle to latch on elsewhere as a camp body.

Vikings signed WRs Kris Adams and Kerry Taylor, OG Chris DeGeare, LB Tyrone McKenzie, CB Reggie Jones, TE Allen Reisner, and OL Butch Lewis to reserve/future contracts.

Adams went undrafted out of UTEP this past April, but possesses good size (6'3/195) and was a standout in Bears 2011 training camp. He may have a legit shot to make the Vikings' 2012 roster pending more good practice efforts. McKenzie has the highest profile of this group as a former third-round pick.

Bears signed WR Kris Adams to the practice squad.

An undrafted free agent out of Texas-El Paso, Adams caught five balls for 76 yards during the preseason. Considered a deep threat and able to play special teams, it would be far from surprising if he was added to the active roster at some point this season.
