Broncos K Brandon McManus announced via his Twitter account that he’s being placed on the COVID-19 list due to being a close contact with someone who tested positive. The good news is that McManus plans on being available in Week 15.
I will be going on the Reserve/COVID-19 list because of a close contact outside the building. Still plan on playing Saturday

Denver has Taylor Russolino on their practice squad in case they need a kicker this week.
McManus, 29, originally signed on with the Colts back in 2013. He lasted just a few months with the Colts before he caught on with the Giants at the end of the 2014 season.
New York later traded McManus to the Broncos for a 2015 conditional seventh-round pick. McManus returned to the Broncos in 2017 on a one-year, restricted tender worth $2.746 million and later agreed to a three-year, $11.254 million extension.
In 2020, McManus has appeared in 13 games for the Broncos and converted 22 of 24 field goal attempts (91.7 percent) to go along with 21 of 24 extra point tries (87.5 percent).
