EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ – New York Giants safety Logan Ryan was “back in the building” Monday after missing the last two games after a positive COVID-19 test, according to coach Joe Judge.
Ryan, a team captain, was taken off the reserve / COVID-19 list on Monday. That opens the door for him to return for Sunday’s game against the Miami Dolphins.
Ryan, who has previously said he was vaccinated, was forced to stay away from the team for 10 days unless there were two negative tests within a 24-hour period. The latter did not happen and it ended the Giants’ longest consecutive starting streak in 24 games. He said last week on social media that he was “doing well” and in a “good mood”.
New York (4-7) had to make a last-minute adjustment to last Monday night’s game against Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. It was hardly ideal.
Versatile defender Julian Love stepped into Ryan’s starting spot for the past two weeks. Love had four tackles, a half-sack, quarterback punch, passing defense and fumbling recovery in Sunday’s 13-7 win over the Eagles with a full week to prepare.
Ryan, 30, is second on the Giants with 72 tackles. He also has a few forced fumbles.
The veteran defensive back was signed last summer as a free agent. I signed a three-year contract extension of $ 31 million at the end of last year.
