The giant was hit by the coronavirus.
The British “Post” learned that defender Will Hernandez (Will Hernandez) will be included in the COVID-19 reserve list. The Giants discovered that he tested positive Wednesday night. He was immediately quarantined and began the contact tracking process.
Now, eight Giants players and two coaches-outside guard coach Bret Bielema and defensive guard coach Jerome Henderson-have been quarantined, from the team’s scheduled “Monday Night Football” at the MetLife Stadium to face the pirates. Four days. At present, except for the four giants’ offensive lines, everyone else is in isolation.
All close contacts of Hernandez were identified and told that they should stay at home on Thursday. All the isolated players had a passing test at the team facility on Thursday morning and then returned home.
The Giants Quest Diagnostic Training Center will remain open, and the rest of the team will follow the normal meeting and practice schedule. The Giants will practice on the court on Thursday afternoon.
The Giants said in a statement that they are working closely with the NFL’s chief medical officer to respond to the next protocol steps.
After the correct tackle Trent Brown was added to the COVID-19 reserve roster, the Las Vegas Raiders sent all five starting offensive wingers home last week. They were isolated from the starting line this weekend until four of them were approved to participate in Sunday’s game against the Pirates. Ironically, Bucs is now waiting to see if the Giants have a top offensive sideline for Monday night’s game.
As a precaution, moved the Raiders-Bucs game from the “Sunday Night Football” window to 4:05 PM.
