Giants need help ahead of Bucs game
With New York Giants’ offensive lineman Will Hernandez testing positive for COVID-19, most of their starting line was absent from Thursday’s practice as they prepare for a Monday night game against the 5-2 Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
The only starter that practiced today was right guard Kevin Zeitler. Things were so bad that tight end Eric Tomlinson had to play on the offensive line during Thursday’s practice.
Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network made a good point while reporting on the Giants situation, they will not get a full week of practice with their entire team and of course that includes coaches that were sent home for having close contact with Hernandez. This isn’t good for a 1-6 team getting ready for a game against Tom Brady and the Bucs.
While the Giants-Bucs game isn’t expected to get moved, there is always a chance the NFL could decide to move it to Sunday afternoon and then move another game to Monday night in order to make sure there is a game on Monday night.
