The good news for the Chargers is that HC Anthony Lynn said Pipkins could still play on Sunday, per Jeff Miller.
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.
