Giants’ Toney placed on Reserve/COVID-19 list

Wide receiver Kadarius Toney, the Giants’ first selection in the 2021 NFL draft, has been placed on the Reserve/COVID-19 list, the team announced on Thursday.

The Giants’ rookies reported yesterday for training camp. Toney is following the NFL protocols by isolating and participating in meetings remotely, according to the team.

The Giants selected Toney from the University of Florida with the 20th selection in this year’s draft after trading with the Chicago Bears to move back from No. 11. 

On other moves, the Giants have signed running back Mike Weber and defensive back Jordyn Peters.

Weber was a seventh-round draft choice in 2019 by the Dallas Cowboys, then coached by Giants offensive coordinator Jason Garrett. Weber spent that entire season on Dallas’ practice squad. He has also been with Kansas City and Green Bay and was released by the Packers on June 9.

In three seasons at Ohio State, Weber rushed for 2,757 yards and 24 touchdowns and caught 54 passes for 297 yards.

Peters was signed as a rookie free agent by the Jets on May 2 and waived on July 2. In his four seasons at Auburn, Peters played in 50 games and had 101 tackles (60 solo), 2.0 sacks and one interception.
