EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- New York Giants offensive lineman Will Hernandez has tested positive for COVID-19, sources confirmed to ESPN, and is expected to be placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list later Thursday.

A positive test was discovered on Wednesday night, according to a statement by the team, which didn't identify the player. The player and those in close contact with him were told to remain home Thursday.

In total, eight players and two coaches were not at the team's facility Thursday, and they will participate in remote meetings for the time being. The two coaches were defensive backs coach Jerome Henderson and outside linebackers coach/senior assistant Bret Bielema.

As of now, the Giants players sent home as close contacts have not been deemed high risk, a source told ESPN, which means they could return to work as early as Friday if things stay on track.

Hernandez was immediately self-isolated following the positive test and contact tracing was initiated, sources told ESPN. NFL Network reported that the Giants had just four available offensive linemen who were not ordered to isolate Thursday.

The Giants play the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Monday Night Football.

"We are working closely with the NFL's Chief Medical Officer regarding next protocol steps," the team said in a statement. "Quest Diagnostics Training Center will remain open, and the rest of the team will follow their normal practice and meeting schedule."

This is the Giants' first known positive test since the start of the season.

Hernandez was not believed to be among the players at a weekend outing where Daniel Jones, Saquon Barkley and Sterling Shepard were videotaped without masks.
