Specialists join Graham Gano
Gano was placed on the list on Tuesday after testing positive for the virus. The release from the Giants does not specify that Dixon and/or Kreiter have also tested positive. Players being quarantined due to contact with a person testing positive for COVID-19 can also be placed on the list.
How the Giants would fill the long-snapping role and who would hold on field-goal or extra-point tries is unknown.
“Ryan’s a guy who has a huge leg, he’s shown a tremendous amount of improvement since he’s been here. It’s a unique skillset that he does all three, field goals, kickoffs and punts. He’s shown a lot of improvement in all three phases through being. I think Tom (Quinn) and T-Mac (Thomas McGaughey) do a tremendous job of working with this guy,” coach Joe Judge said on Wednesday. “We have a lot of confidence in Ryan. He’s definitely a developing player. I think he has a big upside in this league for a long time, I really do.”
