The Giants ‘coaching staff helped save the players’ lives on weekends.
Safety Logan Ryan said his wife, Ashley, flew to the family holiday home in Florida to vote on Tuesday during the presidential election, after the Giant lost to the Buccaneers in “Monday Night Football “.
Ryan said: “I left the stadium around 1 a.m. and she was telling me about some pain in my stomach. “I told her she wanted to fall asleep. She said she was in great pain but she would wait until morning. I spoke to one of our coaches about the symptoms and he said, ‘No, she needs [emergency room]. ”
Ashley followed the team’s advice and was diagnosed with an ectopic pregnancy, according to her husband. This is caused by a fertilized egg that develops outside a woman̵7;s uterus and can lead to life-threatening bleeding.
“The egg was about to burst, so she had to go to emergency surgery and they finally saved her and prevented a lot from happening,” Ryan said. “A coach on our team, Justin Maher, told my wife that going to the emergency room at 1am could have saved her life – or saved a lot of blood in there. That’s the kind of organization we have here. ”
Ryans – college lovers met at Rutgers, where he played football and she played softball – had two children. They moved to their hometown of New Jersey after Logan signed a contract in August with the Giants and reunited with coach Joe Judge.
Ryan played for the Patriots from 2013-16, when Judge was the assistant coach.
“My kids are okay and my wife is recovering well,” Ryan said. “Joe said, ‘If you need to fly to Florida, don’t worry about football.’ Joe is a man and a coach. I know we care about X and O, win and lose, but there are really good people here. That’s why I came here.
“There are really good coaches here. There are really good people behind the scenes working hard for us to win, and I’ll do everything I can to play for a coach like that and play for an organization like this, because if that’s not the case I don’t do I don’t know if my wife is here today. And, to be honest, I’m deeply grateful to this organization, Joe and everyone else who understands bigger than football, especially this year. “
