According to Paul Schwartz, Giants K Graham Gano is the player who has tested positive for COVID-19. 

The team announced Tuesday a player had tested positive and two close contacts on staff were also isolating. The team also closed its facility. 

Gano just signed a three-year, $14 million extension this weekend so it’s shaping up to be an eventful week for the veteran kicker. 

He’ll be placed on the COVID-19 list this afternoon. 

Gano, 33, originally signed on with Washington as an undrafted free agent out of Florida State back in 2009. He spent three years in Washington before signing on with the Panthers for the 2012 season.

Gano played out the final year of his four-year, $12.4 million contract before agreeing to a four-year, $17 million contract with $9 million guaranteed with the Panthers in 2018. Carolina opted to release him back in August and he quickly signed on with the Giants.

In 2020, Gano has appeared in 10 games for the Giants and converted 21 of 22 field goal attempts to go along with all 16 extra point tries.
