Two notable players landed on their respective teams’ reserve/COVID-19 lists today. Cardinals defensive end Chandler Jones and Eagles tight end Dallas Goedert landed on the list today, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport (via Twitter). Each player tested positive.
This will be a close call for Goedert, who is set to play on Thursday night. The NFL says vaccinated and asymptomatic players are required to return two negative tests 24 hours apart, so the organization will start getting more clarity tomorrow. The former second-round pick has appeared in all five games for the Eagles, hauling in 15 catches for 216 yards and two touchdowns.
Collins has a bit more time on his hands, as the Cardinals don’t play until Sunday. After being limited to only five games in 2020, Jones has bounced back in 2021. Through the first five games, the 31-year-old has collected nine tackles, five sacks, and two forced fumbles.
