The Giants’ bye week just got a little more interesting, as three additional players have tested positive for COVID-19 - and it appears those players may be Matt Peart, Kaden Smith, and Dante Pettis, per multiple reports.
Kicker Graham Gano tested positive earlier this week, and as a result, two close contacts – punter Riley Dixon and long snapper Casey Kreiter – were placed on the COVID-reserve list. They can be cleared as soon as they pass negative testing protocols, but Peart, Smith, and Pettis will not be available by next Sunday.
