Giants have to shuffle their roster around with COVID cases
The New York Giants just brought back wide receiver Corey Coleman by signing him to their practice squad on October 27th in case they needed his help at the wide receiver positions.
On Tuesday, New York announced that they’ve terminated Coleman’s contract and signed free agency tight end Nakia Griffin-Stewart to their practice squad. This move makes sense with tight end Kaden Smith possibly missing this Sunday’s game against the Cincinnati Bengals after being placed on the COVID-19/reserve list. Also, with Sterling Shepard back from injury and Austin Mack stepping up as an undrafted rookie, the Giants offense really doesn’t need another wide receiver like Coleman.
Griffin-Stewart will likely stay on the practice squad until the end of the week so they can see if Smith can be activated. The problem is that is Smith stays on the COVID list and doesn’t practice by Friday, it would seem like he won’t play Sunday. of course they can keep him updated with the game plan virtually, but he may not be in game shape if he misses too much practice time.
All we can do is wait and see what happens.
