The Arizona Cardinals have officially placed CB Byron Murphy and LB Devon Kennard on the COVID-19 list Monday.
The COVID-19 list was created this summer for a player who either tests positive for or who has been quarantined after having been in close contact with an infected person or persons.
Players will remain on the list until they are medically cleared to return.
Cardinals OLB Devon Kennard announced on Monday he has tested positive for COVID-19.
I learned that like many others, I have tested positive for Covid 19. Thankfully, I feel completely normal so far. Please keep my family & I in your prayers as we navigate this. I look forward to being back on the field w/my teammates as soon as I am cleared & it’s safe to do so!

Kennard is one of two Cardinals players to test positive over the weekend. However, HC Kliff Kingsbury informed reporters earlier today that contact tracing has revealed no other close contacts so far.
Expect Kennard to be officially placed on the COVID-19 list shortly.
Kennard, 29, is a former fifth-round pick of the Giants out of USC back in 2014. He played out the final year of his four-year, $2,364,560 contract with the Giants and signed a three-year, $18.75 million deal with the Lions in 2018.
However, Detroit elected to cut Kennard this offseason after being unable to find a trade partner for him. He signed a three-year, $20 million deal with the Cardinals shortly after.
In 2020, Kennard has appeared in five games for the Cardinals and recorded 10 tackles and two sacks. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 37 edge defender out of 112 qualifying players.
