Eagles latest team hit by COVID-19 outbreak, place 12 players on reserve list
Good thing the Eagles secured their playoff spot before the final week of the season.
First reported by NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero, twelve Eagles players have tested positive for COVID-19 and have been placed on the reserve list:
- Jason Kelce
- Fletcher Cox
- Dallas Goedert
- Avonte Maddox
- Rodney McLeod
- Genard Avery
- Marcus Epps
- Nate Herbig
- Jordan Howard
- Boston Scott
- Alex Singleton
- Jack Stoll
Due to new COVID protocols, asymptomatic players can return to the team in five days regardless of vaccination status.
With the Eagles clinching yesterday, I wouldn’t expect the team to rush players back for an essentially meaningless game.
