The New York Giants, with several players already out for Sunday’s game against the Chicago Bears due to injury or COVID-19 protocols, made a series of roster moves on Saturday.
The most significant move they made was activation of defensive back Julian Love from the Reserve/COVID-19 list. One significant move they did not make was to elevate offensive lineman Isaiah Wilson from the practice squad or make him a COVID-19 replacement.
The Giants will be without offensive tackle Korey Cunningham, defensive tackle Dexter Lawrence, defensive tackle Danny Shelton and wide receiver Darius Slayton due to COVID-19. Wide receivers Kadarius Toney, John Ross and Collin Johnson are out because of injuries.
The Giants wide receivers on Sunday will be Kenny Golladay, Pharoh Cooper, David Sills V and Alex Bachman.
The Giants could also be without starting center Billy Price, who has been taking time away from the team following his wife’s recent miscarriage.
