The New York Giants have waived Paul Perkins, who started at running back in Week 1 last season.

The Giants drafted Saquon Barkley with the second overall pick last month.

Perkins suffered a pectoral muscle injury before the start of the Giants' offseason workout program. He underwent a procedure recently and was waived with a non-football injury designation.

He's likely to go unclaimed given the injury, and could land on the reserve/NFI list. That would end his season.
