Not only is Giants tight end Daniel Fells out for the season, but he’s dealing with a serious issue after being diagnosed with a MRSA infection from an ankle injury.


The Giants announced Tuesday that they have scrubbed their locker room, meeting areas and training rooms under the supervision of infectious disease specialists.

“We are working with infectious disease specialists, and we have defined protocols that we are following in consultation with the Duke Infection Control Outreach Network and local infectious disease specialists,” Giants spokesman Pat Hanlon said. “Those protocols are being followed carefully.”

Fells has been bothered by an ankle injury in recent weeks and missed Sunday’s win over the Buffalo Bills.
