Linebacker David Mayo is expected to make his 2020 season debut Sunday against the Washington Football Team after the Giants activated him off injured reserve Friday afternoon.
Mayo was placed on IR on Sept. 6 following surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his left knee, an injury he suffered during training camp. The second-year Giant rejoins an inside linebacker rotation of Blake Martinez, Devante Downs and rookies Tae Crowder and TJ Brunson.
Joining the Giants six days prior to the 2019 season after getting released by the San Francisco 49ers, Mayo appeared in all 16 games, including starts in the final 13 games of the season. He tied for second on the team with a career-best 80 tackles, 50 solo, and had his first two career sacks.
