Giants cut Woodson from practice squad

Former University of Kentucky quarterback Andre Woodson was released Thursday from the New York Giants' practice squad.

Woodson, a rookie who holds several UK passing records, was chosen by New York in the sixth round of the NFL Draft in April but failed to make their active roster during the pre-season.

He was placed on the practice squad but was released Thursday to make room for cornerback Rashad Barksdale.
