Giants have a plan for possible COVID-19 outbreak
After the Denver Broncos were unable to have a true starting quarterback for their game against the New Orleans Saints this past Sunday and a good portion of the Baltimore Ravens testing positive for COVID-19 for their game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, the New York Giants are hoping to avoid the hardships that both of those teams went through.
In order to prepare for a worst case scenario, the Giants have now designated six players from their practice squad to not be around of the rest of the team. Those players are wide receiver Alex Bachman, tight end Rysen John, offensive lineman Kenny Wiggins, defensive lineman David Moa, cornerback Jarren Williams and long snapper Carson Tinker, according to Dan Duggan of The Athletic.
The players listed above will come to the Giants’ practice facility after the rest of the team leaves in order to get some work in. Quarterback Alex Tanney is also expected to join this group once he’s officially signed on Saturday.
Let’s hope that the Giants never have to use these quarantined players because that would mean there is some sort of COVID outbreak within their facility.
