What happens when Canty is better?

After Canty is activated off of PUP, the Giants have either a week or two to decide whether or not to activate him or send him to IR.

At that time, we will have to cut a player to make room on the roster.

Also, it guarantees he is out for the first six games. Hopefully he is good to go in week 7, and in that case, the Giants will activate him and (like Drez said) cut someone.

yeah PUP, so to be eligible the player cannot have participated in camp, like Canty ... so it's designed for players that have off-season surgery and the PUP player does not take up a roster sport ... then you have a window between weeks 6 and 9 to decide what to do .... activate the PUP player or IR him ... if you activate him obviously he then uses a roster spot, so you have to make another move to make room ... i.e. maybe Kuhn gets waived, but with all the injuries in the NFL you may have a spot waiting
