Giants lineman Will Hernandez will be set on the COVID-19 save list, The Post has learned. The Giants discovered late Wednesday night he tried positive. He was promptly self-detached and the contact following cycle was begun.
A sum of eight Giants players and two mentors — outside linebackers mentor Bret Bielema and protective backs mentor Jerome Henderson — are presently in isolate, four days before the group is planned to confront the Buccaneers on “Monday Night Football” at MetLife Stadium. Everything except four of the Giants’ hostile linemen are presently in disengagement.
The entirety of the nearby contacts of Hernandez were distinguished and were educated to stay home on Thursday. All major parts in disengagement were at the group office Thursday morning for their drive-by testing and afterward got back.
The Giants Quest Diagnostics Training Center will stay open and the remainder of the group will follow the ordinary gathering and practice plan. The Giants will be on the field Thursday evening for training.
The Giants in an announcement said they are working intimately with the NFL’s Chief Medical Officer in regards to the following convention steps.
