Giants place Manningham, Holliday on IR

The Giants placed former Super Bowl hero Mario Manningham and Trindon Holliday a season-ending injured reserves, likely ending their stay with the Giants (Orr, Aug. 30).

Manningham had two catches this preseason, but a strained calf muscle kept him out of the preseason finale. Manningham has struggled with knee injuries the last two years.

Holliday (hamstring) never really got going as a return specialist and spent most of camp nursing injuries.
