At the start of the bye week, New York Giants kicker Graham Gano tested positive for COVID-19, which forced him into isolation, long snapper Casey Kreiter, and punter Riley Dixon. However, the positive cases didn’t end there, as the Giants updated us on three new players who have contracted the virus.
Luckily, the Giants are currently on their BYE week and have time to test negative and hopefully return to play against the Arizona Cardinals in week 13. However, there is a long road and they could be without a number of players.
An official statement from the New York Giants:
Over the course of last night, we were notified that three players have tested positive for COVID-19. The players were immediately notified to self-isolate, and the contact tracing process is underway. Because of the bye week, the office is closed today.
Players & coaches will resume work Mon. with adjusted schedule. Giants & all teams are operating under the NFL’s intensive protocol for remainder of the season. In all matters relating to positive results & close contacts we’re working with the NFLâ€™s Chief Medical Officer.
