3 Giants Players Test Positive For COVID-19

Three Giants players tested positive for COVID on Thursday however the team's facilities were already closed because they are on a bye week.

According to the team’s statement, the players were notified and told to isolate.

“Because of the bye week, the Giants office is closed today. Players and coaches will resume work on Monday with an adjusted schedule. The Giants and all teams are currently operating under the league’s intensive protocol for the remainder of the season. As in all matters relating to positive test results and close contacts, we are working closely with the NFL’s Chief Medical Officer,” the team said in a statement.

The team did not release the names of the players who tested positive on Thursday. Reporting from NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo states that offensive lineman Matt Peart, wide receiver Dante Pettis and tight end Kaden Smith are set to be placed on the Reserve/COVID list later Friday.

However, that designation does not necessarily mean that those three players tested positive for the virus. The Reserve/COVID list is used by the league for both players who test positive and those who have come in close contact with those testing positive.

The Giants return to the field next Sunday in Cincinnati against the Bengals. They have won each of their last two games.
