The Giants have placed punter Riley Dixon and long snapper Casey Kreiter on the Reserve/COVID list, the team announced Wednesday.

The list is for players who have tested positive or who need to be quarantined due to close contact with someone who has tested positive.

Kicker Graham Gano was placed on the list on Tuesday after testing positive for COVID-19, so it makes sense that the Giants would be precautionary and place them on the list to be safe.

Additionally, two staff members who were deemed close contacts of Gano were told to remain home Tuesday.

The Giants are on a bye week and we set for two days in the facility on Tuesday and Wednesday before taking off, but instead they worked remotely.

This is the second case of coronavirus within the Giants team, with Will Hernandez testing positive before Week 8 and missing two games.
