The Chargers will obviously be placing Groy on the COVID-19 list later today.
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.
Groy, 29, originally signed on with the Bears as an undrafted free agent out of Wisconsin back in 2014. The Bears later traded Groy to the Patriots for Matt Wells, but he didn’t last long in New England.
Groy played briefly for the Buccaneers before the Bills signed him to their roster during the 2015 season. Groy signed in Buffalo to a two-year, $5 million deal after the Bills matched an offer sheet from the Rams.
Groy signed with the Saints last offseason as an unrestricted free agent but was released coming out of the preseason. He caught on with the Chargers in October and returned to the team this past May.
In 2020, Groy has appeared in four games for the Chargers and made three starts.
