After three weeks of 0 cases, the NFL is now seeing several players contract COVID-19. The Titans had a COVID-19 outbreak and other players have also been added to the COVID-19 reserve list.
With the outbreak in Tennessee and Cam Newton testing positive, the #NFL is having their first real COVID-19 crisis.
Why this week should serve as a wake-up call for the NFL. https://t.co/sGXMjVdVyh

So, who is on the NFL Covid-19 reserve list? Here’s a list of who we know is on it for sure right now.
Only rookie starting cornerback A.J. Terrell was placed on the reserve list. He was inactive against the Chicago Bears last week.
Kansas City Chiefs
Practice squad quarterback Jordan Ta’amu tested positive for Covid-19. He serves as the scout quarterback for the Kansas City Chiefs. For example, his job this week was to imitate Cam Newton to help the Chiefs prepare. This led to this joke.
Chiefs practice squad quarterback Jordan Ta’amu tested positive for COVID, Ta’amu serves as Kansas City’s scout team quarterback and played the role of “Cam Newton” in preparation for this week’s game.
He obviously takes this job very seriously, copying Cam a bit too literally.

New England Patriots
Starting quarterback Cam Newton is the only player to have tested positive so far. The Patriots will now look to start quarterback Brian Hoyer against the Chiefs.
On Friday, the Titans announced that receiver Adam Humphries and practice squad receiver Cameron Batson were placed on the COVID-19 reserve list. Additionally, starting nose tackle DaQuan Jones, linebacker Kamalei Correa, long-snapper Beau Brinkley and practice squad tight end Tommy Hudson have all tested positive.
Moreover, cornerback Kristian Fulton was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Thursday.
