Reverts to IR

Clay (ankle) cleared waivers Wednesday and shifted to injured reserve, per the NFL's official transaction log.

Analysis: Before his injury, Clay was used strictly on special teams, and he has just six career receptions over four years. He'll be sidelined for the remainder of the season unless he's released with an injury settlement.

Let go with injury designation

The Giants waived Clay (ankle) on Tuesday with an injury designation, Paul Schwartz of the New York Post reports.

Analysis: Clay never looked to be long for the New York roster after the team picked up another depth wideout in Stacy Coley last week on a waiver claim. The Utah product ultimately sat out the Week 3 win over the Texans with the ankle issue, so he'll remain in the organization and revert to the Giants' injured reserve list if he goes unclaimed off waivers by the other 31 teams.

Ruled out for Week 3

Clay is ruled out for Sunday's game against the Texans, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Clay suffered an ankle injury during the team's loss to Dallas, but the reason for his being sidelined during Week 3 remains undisclosed. In Clay's absence, Odell Beckham or Sterling Shepard could see work returning punts against the Texans on Sunday.

Exits with ankle injury

Clay was sidelined with an ankle injury in Sunday's 20-13 loss to Dallas.

Analysis: The severity of Clay's injury remains unclear and his practice status this week will give a better indication of his health. His absence doesn't impact the Giants offense greatly, as his role is primarily as a punt and kick returner.

Claimed by G-Men

Clay was claimed by the Giants off waivers Sunday after being let go by the Bills, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Clay was picked up mostly for his return skills, so he'll get another chance to make a quick impression and prove to the Giants he's worth a roster spot instead of using one of the current batch of return guys.

Will have to bring return skills elsewhere

Clay was part of Saturday's roster cutdown, John Murphy of the Bills' official site reports.

Analysis: The Bills ended up going with rookies Robert Foster and Ray-Ray McCloud to fill out their final receiver spots. Clay always offers up a lot in the return game, but he's pretty much a one-trick pony at this stage of his career and the Bills have enough other options to return kicks.
