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.

Banjo, 30, originally signed on with the Jaguars as an undrafted free agent out of SMU back in 2013. He lasted just a few months with Jacksonville before he was cut and later signed by the Packers.

Banjo returned to the Packers on an exclusive rights deal back in 2016 only to later cut him loose with an injury settlement. The Saints signed him to a contract a few weeks later and he later signed a three-year extension worth up to $9 million with New Orleans.

Unfortunately, the Saints released him in September of last year and Banjo later caught on with the Cardinals.

In 2020, Banjo has appeared in 13 games for the Cardinals and recorded 48 tackles, no interceptions and a pass defense.
