NFL: Eagles add 12 players to COVID list including Dallas Goedert and Jason Kelce


The Eagles listed 12 players on the COVID-19 list on Monday.

The Philadelphia organization added the names of defensive lineman Fletcher Cox, center Jason Kelce, tight ends Dallas Goedert and Jack Stoll, backs Jordan Howard and Boston Scott, marauders Rodney McLeod and Marcus Epps, linebackers Genard Avery and Alex Singleton, cornerback Avonte Maddox and guard Nate Herbig on this list.

Every player has either been a starter or seen playtime this season for the Eagles, who managed to secure their ticket to the playoffs with a 20-16 win over Washington and a Minnesota Vikings loss.

The Eagles must conclude their regular schedule against the Dallas Cowboys on Saturday to determine their final rank in the standings, either sixth or seventh in the National.

With the less strict measures for the return to play, registered players could be in uniform on Saturday. A total of 16 Eagles players are on COVID-19 protocol.

The Tennessee Titans (11-5), who could clinch first place in the AFC by winning on Sunday, have added receiver Julio Jones, linebacker Jayon Brown and backup offensive player Kendall Lamm to their roster. The Titans received a bye for Lamm, as their team now has 54 players.

The Titans have also returned defensive back Briean Boddy-Calhoun to their practice squad. Offensive lineman Paul Adams has been placed on the COVID-19 list and he is the only one on the team who is in this situation.

The Minnesota Vikings, who are already eliminated, have placed five more players on the reserve list, including four starters: backup safety Camryn Bynum, left guard Ezra Cleveland, left tackle Christian Darrisaw, linebacker Eric Kendricks and right tackle Brian O’Neill. They could be back if they are asymptomatic.

Quarterback Kirk Cousins ​​and linebacker Nick Vigil, who weren’t on the Vikings roster during the 37-10 loss to the Green Bay Packers due to the virus, could also return to action this week. The Minnesota squad have placed 29 players on the reserve list over the past nine weeks.

The Packers have placed Dennis Kelly, who started the last three games as a right tackle, and starting safety Darnell Savage on the COVID-19 roster. Linebacker Chauncey Rivers was moved from the reserve list to the injured players list.

The San Francisco 49ers have put the names of cornerbacks K’Waun Williams and Dontae Johnson as well as running back Raheem Mostert on the COVID-19 list. Head coach Kyle Shanahan has said he’s hopeful Williams and Johnson will be able to return to the game for the final game of the season, against the Los Angeles Rams.

Houston Texans safety Justin Reid also landed on the COVID-19 list. Cincinnati Bengals cornerback Darius Phillips and fellow receiver Auden Tate have been moved to the injured list.

Linebackers Will Compton and Patrick Onwuasor have returned to the Las Vegas Raiders roster.
