The Giants signed Jackson to their practice squad Wednesday, Ryan Dunleavy of the New York Post reports.

Just a couple days after cutting him, the Giants have now decided to bring Jackson back on board. As long as Saquon Barkley and Matt Breida remain healthy, Jackson's path to playing time is still virtually nonexistent.

Cut by G-Men

The Giants waived Jackson on Monday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Jackson has appeared in four games for three different teams this season. He rushed one time for two yards in one appearance for the Giants. Jackson will look for yet another team to give him a shot.

Jackson (coach's decision) is inactive ahead of Sunday's game against the Commanders, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

Jackson will be a healthy scratch for the second time since signing with the Giants in late October. The 24-year-old running back has spent time with Cleveland, Indianapolis and New York this season, recording 30 total yards on 19 touches.

Jackson cleared league concussion protocol Thursday, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

Jackson sat out of Sunday's game at Dallas as he dealt with a concussion, but it now looks like he'll be available for Week 11. In his first and only appearance with the Giants thus far, he took one carry for two yards.

Won't face Dallas

Jackson (concussion) is ruled out for Sunday's road matchup against the Cowboys, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

Jackson won't be eligible to retake the field until he's fully cleared the NFL's five-step concussion protocol. The depth running back will should have a good chance to return to health in time to suit up on the road versus Washington in Week 11.

Dealing with concussion

Jackson is in concussion protocol Wednesday, Dan Duggan of The Athletic reports.

Jackson played just 10 total snaps in Sunday's loss at Las Vegas, but it seems he might have picked up a concussion somewhere along the way. Most players who have entered the league's concussion protocol in 2023 have missed at least one game, so it's not a great sign as it relates to the possibility he'll play again in Week 10.

Healthy scratch for Week 8

Jackson is inactive for Sunday's matchup against the Jets, Jordan Raanan of reports.

Jackson was signed to the active roster by the Giants on Tuesday after he was cut by Cleveland one day earlier. New York is in need of running back depth with Gary Brightwell (hamstring) and Eric Gray (calf) landing on IR this week, but the team has opted to look to the also recently signed Jashaun Corbin to back up Saquon Barkley and Matt Breida against the Jets. Jackson may need an injury ahead of him before he's able to to see action for the Giants.

Snapped up by the Giants

The Giants claimed Jackson from waivers Tuesday, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

Jackson was signed to the Browns' active roster Saturday, played seven snaps on special teams Sunday against the Colts and was cut by the team Monday. Rather than going unclaimed, Jackson was picked up by the Giants, who are in need of backfield depth with Eric Gray (calf) placed on injured reserve and Saquon Barkley (elbow) and Gary Brightwell (hamstring) both questionable for their Week 8 game against the Jets.
