Jaguars To Place 12 Practice Squad Players On Reserve/COVID-19 List

The NFL’s expanded coronavirus protocols have resulted in more players landing on teams’ respective reserve/COVID-19 lists. The Jaguars have the most crowded list, as of Saturday afternoon.

The Jags placed 12 of their 16 practice squad players on their reserve/COVID-19 list, Tom Pelissero of NFL.com tweets. This does not yet appear to be a case of a dozen positive tests. Jacksonville P-squad offensive lineman K.C. McDermott tested positive, and the league’s new contact tracing protocols have led the team to put the bulk of its practice squad on the COVID list for the time being.

Here are the players who joined McDermott on the Jags’ reserve/COVID list:

Suspended defensive end Josh Mauro will join McDermott and the slew of P-squad players on the COVID-19 list, Pelissero adds (on Twitter). Mauro has been suspended throughout the season for a positive PED test.

Considering players placed on this list must isolate for five days, the Jaguars will need to make some moves to fill out a practice squad following their Week 6 game. Even players who are asymptomatic after close contact with someone who tested positive for COVID-19 must isolate for at least five days. The Jags face the Chargers next Sunday; there will be several new P-squad players to start their next week of practice.

    This is the beginning of the end to this season. Mark my words, NFL operations will be suspended by mid-November

      The NFL is only about money and money don’t stop. They will forge thru no matter what. The super bowl will be later in Feb tho.

    • A single practice squad player testing positive is the beginning of the end? That’s awfully mellow dramatic don’t you think?

    • Patrick N.

      How is this the beginning of the end when this isn’t even the first outbreak in the NFL? First positive was a month ago
