  • Giants' Xavier McKinney: Solid in Year 2

    After an injured-marred rookie season, McKinney had a solid second year, racking up 93 tackles and five interceptions, one of which he took to the house.

    McKinney played the third-most snaps (1,101) among all defensive players and should reprise his massive role again in 2022.

  • Giants' Xavier McKinney: Returns to active roster

    McKinney was removed from the reserve/COVID-19 list Saturday and will be eligible to play Sunday against the Cowboys, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

    With the Giants' secondary missing three separate players due to COVID-19, McKinney's return is a welcome one against a pass-heavy Cowboys offense. The second-year safety is in the midst of a breakout season, accumulating 70 tackles, five interceptions and one touchdown through 13 games this season.

  • Giants' Xavier McKinney: Lands on COVID list

    The Giants placed McKinney on the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday as an unvaccinated high-risk close contact.

    McKinney landed on the list in early November, but he was quickly restored to the roster when his test result was determined to be a false positive. Though his latest placement on the list isn't the result of a positive, league protocols call for unvaccinated players to remain away from the team for at least five days if they're deemed to be a high-risk close contact of an infected person. As such, McKinney won't be eligible to report back to the Giants' facility until Saturday, one day before the team plays the Cowboys. McKinney should be available for the Week 15 contest if he continues to test negative for the virus over the next few days.

  • Giants' Xavier McKinney: Returns pick for score

    McKinney recorded four tackles and an interception in Sunday's 23-16 win over the Raiders.

    McKinney had a disjointed week leading up to the game, as he was placed on reserve/COVID-19 list before it was revealed the test was a false positive. However, that didn't stop him from making a pivotal interception early in the third quarter, which he returned for a 41-yard touchdown. His effort put the Giants up 17-13, and the team never trailed again. McKinney now has seven passes defended and four interceptions across nine games this season.

  • Giants' Xavier McKinney: Coming off COVID list

    McKinney will be removed from the reserve/COVID-19 list Friday due to his test results for the virus having been revealed to be a false positive.

    McKinney will return to team facilities Friday, making him eligible to suit up for Sunday's contest against the Raiders. Star running back Saquon Barkley (ankle) will also return to the team Friday, but because he was dealing with injury prior to landing on the COVID list, his status for Week 9 remains more unclear.

  • Giants' Xavier McKinney: Tests positive for COVID

    McKinney tested positive for COVID-19, and his status for Week 9 is uncertain, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports.

    McKinney's vaccine status is unclear, but if he's vaccinated and able to return two negative tests within 24 hours, he will be able to play Sunday against the Raiders. Expect an update with the safety's vaccine status within the next couple of days. It's likely Logan Ryan will see an increased role Sunday if McKinney is unable to suit up.
