The New York Giants have announced that first-round pick Kadarius Toney has been placed on the Reserve/COVID-19 list just one day after reporting for training camp.
For New York Giants fans hoping training camp would go smoothly and without a hitch, well, that’s not going to be the case. On Thursday afternoon, the NFC East team announced that rookie wide receiver Kadarius Toney has been placed on the Reserve/COVID-19 list.
Toney, a speedster out of Florida, arrived to camp on Wednesday and he was getting ready to make a name for himself with his new teammates. Instead, he’s now following league protocols and is currently in isolation.

Per league rules, Toney can still take part in team meetings, but he’ll have to do so remotely. Obviously, this isn’t what the Giants had in mind for the No. 20 overall pick with the NFL 2021 campaign right around the corner.
Things haven’t gone swimmingly for Toney, as on top of this latest breaking news, he also missed some time during minicamp. Now, he’s away from the team and will have to get cleared before he can start catching passes from signal-caller Daniel Jones.
The Giants had another year to forget in 2020, finishing the campaign with a 6-10 record. They’ll look at Toney to help spread the field and make big-time plays throughout his first season in the pros. First, he’ll have to wait before given the green light to get back on the field.
