One day after New York Giants rookies reported to training camp and just hours after details of an NFL memo emerged showing that the league could require teams to be forfeited and even withhold payment if a game cannot take place as planned due to COVID-19, the Giants confirmed that first-round draft roster Kadarius Toney has been placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list.

The Giants did not specify whether Toney tested positive for the coronavirus or was considered a “risky close contact”. Big Blue added, “Toney follows NFL protocols by isolating remotely and joining meetings.”

The Giants traded with the Chicago Bears on draft opening night to go down before acquiring the Florida Gators star receiver with the 20th pick.

Earlier in the day, NFL Media’s Judy Battista reported that 14 clubs had reached the 85% COVID-19 vaccination threshold, which could ease some health and safety protocols. Dan Duggan of Athletics reported on July 12 that the Giants had not yet reached the 85% mark when only seven teams had crossed that threshold.
