WR Kadarius Toney activated from Reserve/COVID-19 list; LB Blake Martinez, S Joshua Kalu added


Wide receiver Kadarius Toney, the Giants' first-round draft choice, has been removed from the Reserve/COVID-19 list. Two players were placed on the list: linebacker Blake Martinez, the team's leading tackler last season, and safety Joshua Kalu.

"(Toney is) with us today in the building, so he's back with us," coach Joe Judge said. "We have a number of guys for different reasons that we're actually going to take them a little bit slower. Obviously, coming off of that protocol as we learned last year with the number of players on our team throughout the season, we're going to go and move them around the field and make sure that he's ready to go, then we'll start integrating with our team. We're not going to go ahead and rush anything to get in the process. He'll be in the meetings with all our players. He'll be able to go out there and operate in some of the – some of the meetings we get a little bit more on our feet.

"But in terms of practice itself, we're not going to do anything with him on the field with the team until we know he's fully ready to go. His timetable will be different, I'm sure, than a lot of the guys last year that we learned from. One thing we really took away from last year was these things are all very specific to each person, what their symptoms were or what their exposure was, but that time away from training is what's critical."

Judge was asked about the team's vaccination rate.

"Every staff (member) and coach is fully vaccinated," he said. "That, I can tell you. In terms of the team itself and the number rate, I'm not going to get into rates. I would say that since the end of spring, we've had a number of players who have either started or finalized the vaccination process. We've had a number of meetings with our players that they understand that if they're not vaccinated, the protocols that are tied into that."
