The 4-11 New York Giants head to the Windy City on Sunday to take on the (5-10) Chicago Bears at Soldier Field. It’s slated to be a very cold day at about 21 degrees for two teams who have both been ice cold as of late. The Giants have lost four straight games while the Bears have lost eight of their last 10.
The Giants could turn to both Mike Glennon and rookie Jake Fromm at quarterback. Glennon has completed 86 of 156 pass attempts (55.1 percent). He has four touchdowns, eight interceptions and a 55.7 passer rating. After three ineffective starts, Glennon was replaced in the starting lineup Sunday by Fromm, who didn’t do much better.
Kenny Golladay and a cast of practice squad players will suit up at wide receiver on Sunday against the Chicago Bears. Collin Johnson (hamstring), John Ross (knee/COVID ramp up) and Kadarius Toney (shoulder) have all been ruled out. Darius Slayton is on the Reserve/COVID-19 list and won’t play. That leaves the Giants with Golladay and Pharoh Cooper, Alex Bachman and David Sills.
Starting center Billy Price is doubtful while dealing with a family matter.
In addition to Slayton, defensive tackle Dexter Lawrence, offensive tackle Korey Cunningham and defensive tackle Danny Shelton are on the Reserve/COVID-19 list.
