The New York Giants left London with an impressive 27-22 win over the Green Bay Packers, but one of their players reportedly was kept overseas. On Tuesday, NFL Media reported that Giants punter Jamie Gillan remained in London following the game after experiencing some passport issues. On Thursday, Gillan was back with the Giants at the team facility, per ESPN, ahead of a Week 6 matchup against the Baltimore Ravens.
Gillan, who is also known as "The Scottish Hammer," reportedly came to the States on a NATO visa with his father. That designation didn't get changed to a work visa when Gillan got to the NFL. This issue apparently slipped through the cracks when Gillan made his trip to London with the team, and U.S. diplomats reportedly had to step in to rectify the situation with a new passport for the punter.
