The three players the Giants declared out of the game on their final injury report were all wide receivers: Kadarius Toney (shoulder), John Ross (knee/COVID-19 ramp up) and Collin Johnson (hamstring). Darius Slayton will not play after he was placed on the Reserve/COVID-19 list this week. Sterling Shepard, C.J. Board and Dante Pettis are on injured reserve. Defensive lineman Dexter Lawrence was placed on the COVID-19 reserve list this week and will miss the game.
Meanwhile, defensive back Julian Love was activated from the Reserve/COVID-19 list. Love, who grew up in the Chicago area, had interceptions in each of the Giants' games at Soldier Field the previous two seasons. The Giants also activated six players from the practice squad on Saturday: receivers Alex Bachman, David Sills and Pharoh Cooper, defensive tackles Woodrow Hamilton and David Moa, and offensive tackle Derrick Kelly.
Center Billy Price announced on Instagram his wife, Taylor, had a miscarriage 15 weeks into her pregnancy. He was excused from practice and listed as doubtful for the game.
"We fully support Billy, fully support Billy as an organization, him and his wife as just individuals and their family and what they're going through right now," coach Joe Judge said. "We left the door open to Billy in a lot of ways in terms of whatever he needs from us. When I talked to him earlier in the week, I let him know, 'Hey, listen, if you've got to come in here and let this be a distraction, if you want to stay engaged with the game plan, if you want to come out and practice and blow off some steam and hit the weight room, whatever you've got to do.' He's dealing with something that a lot of us have been blessed that we haven't had to deal with. He's going through something personally that we've got to make sure we account for and give him support as an organization, as a person."
Four players were listed as questionable: tackle Nate Solder (COVID-19 ramp up), cornerback Adoree' Jackson (quad/COVID-19 ramp up), defensive lineman Austin Johnson (foot) and tight end Chris Myarick (hip).
