Giants player tests positive for COVID-19

The New York Giants on Thursday announced that a player tested positive for COVID-19.

NFL Network reported that it was an offensive lineman and that all but four of the team’s linemen are in quarantine.

“The player was immediately self-isolated, and the contact tracing process was initiated,” the team said in a statement. “All of the player’s close contacts were identified and were informed to remain home (Thursday). Those individuals will participate in meetings remotely.”

The news comes in the aftermath of a video that circulated showing quarterback Daniel Jones and running back Saquon Barkley in a Manhattan bar without masks. The video reportedly was recorded last Friday night.

However, the New York Daily News reported Thursday that the player who tested positive was not one of those who was maskless.

The Giants (1-6) are scheduled to host the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (5-2) on Monday night.
