Giants’ Logan Ryan likely out for second consecutive game due to COVID-19

The New York Giants hoped to regain Logan Ryan’s safety against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 11, but his return was lagging. Now he will likely miss his second game in a row due to COVID-19.

Giants head coach Joe Judge revealed Friday that Ryan, who has been fully vaccinated and boosted, is expected to sit out Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles.

“At the moment nothing has changed. Yes, nothing else has changed, so we’re still waiting. He’s testing every day and we’ll see how that plays out,” Judge told reporters.

“Yeah, that’s right,” Judge added when asked if they planned on being without him. “Do we have a contingency plan in case something changes? We do. But at the moment he is not available for us on the pitch, so we are planning without him.”

Ryan tested positive for COVID-19 two Thursdays ago and has since been unable to string consecutive negative tests. Even with the positive tests, his 10-day period expires after the team’s Week 12 game against the Eagles.

In nine games this season, Ryan has made 72 tackles (47 solo, one for a loss), one QB hit, two forced fumbles and five defensive passes.
