Report: Giants punter still in London due to passport issues originally appeared on NBC Sports Philadelphia

It’s been more than 48 hours since the New York Giants defeated the Green Bay Packers in London.

But one of New York’s players is still across the pond.

Punter Jamie Gillan remains in London following Sunday’s game due to passport issues, NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo and Tom Pelissero reported Tuesday.

Both Gillan and the Giants were aware in advance of the international trip that the punter could face passport issues for the team’s return flight home, per the report.

Gillan reportedly will be stuck abroad for at least a couple of more days as he’s expected to fly back home Thursday. The Giants reportedly will work out punters this week just in case Gillan doesn’t make it back in time for Sunday’s home game against the Baltimore Ravens.

Gillan, who was born in Scotland and spent most of his childhood there, punted twice for an average of 50 yards in the 27-22 win over Green Bay. The fourth-year pro nicknamed the “Scottish Hammer” fourth in the NFL ranks this season with an average of 51 yards per punt.
