For Sills, this is the second time since July that he’s been placed on the Reserve/COVID-19 list.
Clubs are not allowed to disclose whether a player has tested positive or is quarantining due to close contact with someone who has.
Prior to landing on IR, Sills had a tremendous training camp for the Giants and was frequently referred to as a “rep stealer.”
“David Sills has done a really good job,” wide receivers coach Tyke Tolbert said in August. “He’s a really smart guy, he’s working hard. He’ll go in there and play all of the positions. I told you guys the other day, he’s a rep stealer. He has his reps, he’s going to go in and run his reps, then he’ll steal some other reps. If he sees guys running down the field, he’ll jump in there and say ‘I got them, I got them.’ I like that about him. He jumps in there, doesn’t matter what position it is. He goes in there and plays and executes his assignments.”
Additionally, the Giants also announced that defensive back Madre Harper (knee) has been designated to return from IR and could return to practice as early as Wednesday afternoon.
In nine games for the Giants this season, Harper recorded five tackles and recovered one fumble.
