Wednesday morning, the NY Giants had to alter their practice plans due to the impact of a winter storm that belted New Jersey overnight 

The sudden burst of winter weather across Northern New Jersey wreaked havoc on the NY Giants preparation for Sunday’s Week 18 clash with the Washington Football Team.

Moments before reporters were set to enter the Quest Diagnostics Training Center to cover practice Wednesday morning, the Giants moved practice indoors, after freezing rain pelted the region overnight and in the early morning hours.

According to NY Giants head coach Joe Judge, several players and even one member of the coaching staff were stuck in traffic on their way to the facility on Wednesday morning.

NY Giants wide receiver Darius Slayton took to Twitter to voice his frustrations over the traffic jam, which was caused by a multi-vehicle accident.

The 4-12 NY Giants have just two more practice days before closing out a fifth consecutive double-digit loss season, at home, against their division rivals.

Sunday afternoon, the NY Giants will be particularly shorthanded along the offensive line, after releasing troubled former first-round pick Isaiah Wilson, as Nate Solder and Andrew Thomas are the only healthy offensive tackles currently on New York’s active roster.
