EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — The New York Giants have activated starting left guard Will Hernandez off the Reserve/COVID-19 list after missing two games.

New York on Tuesday also waived cornerback Corey Ballentine, a sixth-round pick a year ago, and added wide receiver/return specialist Dante Pettis to the roster.

Hernandez was placed on the Reserve/COVID list on Oct. 29, four days before a game against Tampa Bay.

It ended his career-beginning streak of 39 consecutive starts.

Rookie Shane Lemieux replaced him and played well.

The Giants play at home on Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles.
