4 Giants activated off COVID list; Elerson Smith to IR


The four players who missed the Chicago game because they were on the Reserve/COVID-19 list were activated today. Defensive lineman Dexter Lawrence did not practice, while wide receiver Darius Slayton, tackle Korey Cunningham and nose tackle Danny Shelton were limited.

"All the players are back in, ramping up and getting ready to go ahead and return," coach Joe Judge said. "We'll see where they are physically as far as their return. They were in the building yesterday with the trainers as far as moving along that path. They'll continue with the ramp-up today and then get them back on the field as soon as we can."

Linebacker Omari Cobb and defensive back Ka'dar Hollman were restored to the practice squad from the COVID-19 list, though Hollman remains on injured reserve.

Practice squad defensive lineman Woodrow Hamilton was placed on the COVID-19 reserve list. He started and assisted on two tackles in his Giants debut in Chicago.

The Giants placed rookie linebacker Elerson Smith on injured reserve with a neck injury. Smith played in the last eight games after spending the first eight weeks of the season on I.R. with a hamstring injury he suffered early in training camp. He made four tackles and two quarterback hits on defense and three stops and one fumble recovery on special teams.
