Giants to practice despite assistant coach’s positive test
The New York Giants expect to follow their planned schedule on Friday, despite a positive COVID-19 test on the coaching staff.
“The Giants have been informed that offensive line coach Dave DeGuglielmo has tested positive for COVID-19,” a team statement said.
“He was immediately isolated, as were two potential close contacts, and we are currently working with the league’s chief medical officer. Quest Diagnostics Training Center remains open, and the team is following its normal practice and meeting schedule today.”
The team didn’t name the close contacts.
The news comes just two days before the biggest game of the season for the Giants. Despite their 5-10 record, they could win the NFC East and earn a playoff berth if they beat the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday afternoon and the Washington Football Team loses to the Philadelphia Eagles later in the day.
Offensive coordinator Jason Garrett tested positive for the virus in mid-December but has returned to the team.
