The Giants will be without one of their key defenders for their Week 17 matchup against the Bears.

New York head coach Joe Judge told reporters in his Wednesday press conference that Dexter Lawrence will be added to the COVID-19 list. Judge also noted, according to multiple reporters, that Lawrence is out for Sunday’s contest based on the timeline of when he went on the COVID-19 list.

Lawrence has 49 total tackles, 2.5 sacks, four tackles for loss, and 11 quarterback hits in 15 games this season.

But the Giants are getting some players back. Defensive back Adoree’ Jackson, defensive back Keion Crossen, and receiver John Ross have all been activated off the COVID-19 list.

Linebacker Trent Harris has also been designated to return from injured reserve. And New York signed linebacker Omari Cobb to its practice squad.
