The Giants are going to be without offensive coordinator Jason Garrett for Sunday night’s game against the Browns.

The team announced on Thursday that Garrett has tested positive for COVID-19.

Contact tracing is going on and the team says there do not appear to be any high-risk close contacts, but are waiting for confirmation from the league. The Giants are still closing the facility on Thursday and will not be practicing “out of an abundance of caution.”

With Garrett working remotely for the time being, tight ends coach Freddie Kitchens will serve as the team’s offensive playcaller against the Browns. Kitchens was the head coach of the Browns last season, so there will be plenty of familiar faces trying to thwart his efforts to plot the Giants to a win in Week 15.

  1. He tested positive for lunacy after letting his left tackle get beat for 5 sacks last week and not adjusting to give him help. Cowboys fan saw that movie the first time in 2017 vs Atlanta. You’d think an Ivy League guy would learn from his mistakes.

    Not sure where you’re getting your information. Via PFF: “Thomas was charged with allowing two sacks and five hurries in 32 pass-blocking snaps, finishing with a season-worst 21.4 pass-blocking grade.”

  3. “You’d think an Ivy League guy would learn from his mistakes.”

    You know whet they call the guy that gets the lowest grades in medical school, but still passes?

    Doctor.

  4. Concidering Covid19+Rookie QB, injuries and losing their best offensive player, Barkley, Dr. Clap-A-Lot has done a credible job as OC. I didn’t think much of him as HC, but that may have a lot to do with the Joneses, but I thought him as an OK OC for the Boys. Let’s see what he can do as the offensive pieces fall into place for the Giants.

    What the heck is “allot”? I think you mean a lot. Nothing funnier then someone, who is attempting to be snarky, making a fool of himself.
