JAMES BRADBERRY AND JASON GARRETT WILL MISS SUNDAY’S GAME DUE TO COVID-19…
New York Giants cornerback James Bradberry and Offensive Coordinator Jason Garrett will miss Sunday’s game against the Cleveland Browns due to COVID-19. Bradberry has been officially placed on the Reserve/COVID-19 List.

According to the Giants’ press release, “Bradberry was placed on the list because he was deemed to be a high risk close contact of an individual who has tested positive. The contact did not occur at the Giants facility and the individual is not a member of the organization.”

Garrett actually tested positive for COVID-19. Garrett will continue to work remotely and Tight Ends Coach Freddie Kitchens will serve as the team’s offensive play caller on Sunday.

The Giants coaches and players did not meet on Monday or Tuesday. Due to NFL COVID-19 protocols, the team also did not practice on Thursday.

“Instead of practicing this afternoon, what we’ll do is we’ll bring the players back into a Zoom meeting from 3 to 5:30,” said Head Coach Joe Judge, “and we’ll go ahead and get a jump-start on tomorrow’s install, along with some extra tape on the Browns. We’re going to use this as a good mental day and prepare, make sure we get some good organizational work between units with communication. We’ll take advantage of everything afforded to us, and we’ll get back on the field tomorrow.”

On a related note, running back Devonta Freeman, who tested positive for COVID-19 earlier this month while on Injured Reserve, has been taken off of the Reserve/COVID-19 List. Freeman remains on IR with ankle and hamstring injures.

DECEMBER 17, 2020 NEW YORK GIANTS INJURY REPORT…
While the team did not practice on Thursday due to COVID-19 protocols, it did issue the following injury report:

CB Darnay Holmes (knee) would not have practiced. QB Daniel Jones (hamstring/ankle), TE Kaden Smith (knee), and OG Kevin Zeitler (shoulder) would have been limited in practice.

“(Jones) actually was allowed to come in the building today,” said Judge. “We had some treatment available for some guys that are either on IR or guys that needed treatment. They were the only players in the building today. But in terms of Daniel, the evaluation has obviously been put off a day as far as him moving around. Look, I was encouraged with how he moved around yesterday at practice, how he threw the ball, how he was in the pocket. That was very encouraging. That being said, we’ll have to see him at really a faster tempo. Tomorrow will be really the day we’ll evaluate that out there. I’d say obviously with two injuries, it’s a little bit different situation than it was just last week. But he’s making progress, he’s doing everything the trainers ask him to and he’s working hard. We just need to make sure we do a good job of really watching him tomorrow at practice and make the best decision.”

DECEMBER 10, 2020 NEW YORK GIANTS INJURY REPORT…
CB Madre Harper (knee) did not practice on Thursday.

QB Daniel Jones (hamstring), LB Blake Martinez (back), OT Matt Peart (ankle), and CB Darnay Holmes (knee) were limited in practice.

“I think (Jones is) working hard every day to get better,” said Head Coach Joe Judge. “He’s doing everything we ask him to do. He did a good job in the walkthrough yesterday. We put him through some basic agility, short space stuff. I would say that he’s throwing the ball well, but there’s a lot of things we still need to see. Throwing the ball in short space and going through a walkthrough are very, very different than going through team periods and being able to see how this guy reacts and moves in the pocket, which is really our biggest concern is how he can protect himself on the field. Today will tell us a lot and tomorrow hopefully we’ll make a final decision.”

TRENT HARRIS RE-SIGNED TO PRACTICE SQUAD…
The New York Giants have re-signed linebacker Trent Harris to the Practice Squad. Harris was cut from the 53-man roster on Tuesday.

The Giants signed Harris to the Practice Squad and then the 53-man roster in October 2020. He played in four games with two starts for the Giants. The 6’2”, 255-pound Harris was originally signed as an undrafted rookie free agent by the New England Patriots after the 2018 NFL Draft. He spent his rookie season on the Practice Squad of the Patriots. The Miami Dolphins claimed Harris off of waivers in September 2019. He played in 11 games with three starts with the Dolphins, accruing 20 tackles and 1.5 sacks. The Dolphins cut him in early September 2020.

DECEMBER 3, 2020 NEW YORK GIANTS INJURY REPORT…
QB Daniel Jones (hamstring) and LB Cam Brown (illness) did not practice on Thursday.

“We had positive reports on (Jones) yesterday,” said Head Coach Joe Judge. “Obviously, we have to kind of see a little bit more from him today. The plan is to get him out there with the trainers, move him around a little bit, throw a little bit, see where that progresses to and what that allows him to do later in practice today or maybe what that shows what we can do with him tomorrow. Again, there are still a lot of questions more so than answers right now. I know he’s doing everything he can to get back and be with the team. He’s preparing tirelessly, he’s in the building, he’s doing everything he can like it would be any other day. I know mentally where he’s at. We just have to check physically where he’s at and make sure we make the right decision for him.”

WR Darius Slayton (shoulder/foot), WR Sterling Shepard (toe/shoulder), LB David Mayo (knee), and S Nate Ebner (knee) were limited in practice.

PRACTICE SQUAD MOVE…
The New York Giants have terminated the Practice Squad contract of safety Chris Williamson, who the team drafted in the 7th-round of the 2020 NFL Draft.
