Tracking the NFL's Week 7 COVID-19 Players

Here is the weekly post that will track the players that have been placed on the NFL's Reserve/COVID-19 list.  As players are placed on the list, this post will be updated with each addition.  Here are the players that have been added to the NFL's Reserve/COVID-19 list before the week 7 games:

  • October 19 - The Las Vegas Raiders have placed rookie cornerback Damon Arnette on the Reserve/COVID-19 list. He was already on the injured reserve due to thumb surgery and was the Raiders first round pick.
  • October 19 - The Carolina Panthers placed offensive lineman Michael Schofield on the Reserve/COVID-19 list. The Panthers are working remotely on Monday and Tuesday out of an abundance of caution.
  • October 21 - The Carolina Panthers placed kicker Joey Slye and offensive lineman Trent Scott on the Reserve/COVID-19 list.  It is believed they were placed on the list due to close contact with someone with COVID-19 and not a positive test.
  • October 21 - The Las Vegas Raiders placed offensive lineman Trent Brown on the Reserve/COVID-19 list.  The Raiders also sent home the rest of the starting offensive lineman as a precaution because of close contact with Trent Brown.
  • October 22 - The Las Vegas Raiders have placed safety Jonathan Abram and offensive lineman Kolton Miller, Denzelle Good, Rodney Hudson, and Gabe Jackson on the Reserve/COVID-19 list.  This was as a precaution as they were in close contact with Trent Brown.  The NFL has moved the Raiders vs. Buccaneers game from primetime to Sunday at 4:05 to allow for flexibility in case the game has to be moved.  They will still have a prime time game if that is the case.
  • October 23 - The New Orleans Saints have placed wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders on the Reserve/COVID-19 list.  Coach Sean Payton said that he was experiencing symptoms and was sent home to quarantine after practice on Thursday.  Sean Payton also said Sanders had a positive test and he knows where he got it outside of the facility.  Emmanuel Sanders will miss this week's game vs. the Carolina Panthers.
  • October 23 - The Carolina Panthers placed cornerback Rasul Douglas on the Reserve/COVID-19 list. He will miss Sunday's game vs. the New Orleans Saints.
  • October 23 - The New Orleans Saints later added cornerback Ken Crawley to the Reserve/COVID-19 list due to close contact with Emmanuel Sanders.  He will miss Sunday's game as well.
  • October 24 - The Buffalo Bills placed TE Dawson Knox on the Reserve/COVID-19 list after testing positive for coronavirus.  After reviewing contract tracing protocols, the Bills also placed tight ends Lee Smith, Tommy Sweeney and practice squad TE Nate Becker on the Reserve/COVID-19 list due to close contact.  None of the tight ends will play against the Jets on Sunday.
  • October 24 - The Chicago Bears placed cornerback Michael Joseph on the Reserve/COVID-19 list. He was previously on IR and hasn't been around the team. 
  • October 24 - The Jacksonville Jaguars have placed running back Chris Thompson on the Reserve/COVID-19 list and he will miss Sunday's game against the Chargers.
