EXCEPT FOR WILL HERNANDEZ, ALL PLAYERS BACK TODAY…
As previously reported, New York Giants left guard Will Hernandez tested positive for COVID and was sent home on Thursday. Hernandez remains at home and was officially placed on the Reserve/COVID-19 List. He will not play on Monday night against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
The good news is that the seven other players and two coaches who were also sent home as a precaution have passed the COVID testing protocols and returned to the team.
The two coaches were reported to be Outside Linebackers Coach Bret Bielema and Defensive Backs Coach Jerome Henderson. The players were offensive linemen Nick Gates, Spencer Pulley, Shane Lemieux, Cam Fleming, Andrew Thomas, and Chad Slade as well as wide receiver Binjimen Victor.
