Pascoe Up From Practice Squad, Kehl Waived

Second-year tight end Bear Pascoe was elevated from the practice squad to serve as a blocking tight end while Kevin Boss recovers from a concussion.

The Giants figured out their tight end situation today by signing Bear Pascoe from the practice squad and waiving linebacker Bryan Kehl, a special teams standout.

Pascoe will undoubtedly become the blocking tight end in the absence of Kevin Boss, who is likely to miss Sunday's game in Indianapolis because of the concussion he sustained last week against the Panthers. The 6-foot-5, 251-pound Pascoe was a training camp standout not only because of his pass-catching ability, but because of his durability and stamina during a spate of injuries that sidelined four of the five tight ends on the roster.

He came to the Giants on Sept. 15 of last year, after the 49ers released him at the end of training camp. Pascoe played in four games last year, and will now serve as a complement to the team's only other tight end, Travis Beckum.

Kehl, a former fourth-round pick of the Giants in 2008, had three special teams tackles against the Panthers. Last year, he and Zak DeOssie tied for the team lead with 16 special teams tackles each. Recommended Stories
