Nick Eatman now reports that Cowboys OL Cam Erving is not on the COVID-19 list and there was been some confusion between the NFL and Cowboys regarding his status.
Eatman says Erving has experienced some flu-like symptoms and the Cowboys will continue to monitor him and hope to get him back to practice this week.
The Dallas Cowboys have placed OT Cam Erving on the Reserve/COVID-19 list, according to Nick Eatman.
Eatman adds that no tests reported to the NFL involving players, coaches or staff members have been positive during the last week, including yesterday.
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.
Erving, 28, is a former first-round pick out of Florida State by the Browns in the 2015 NFL Draft. The Browns traded him to the Chiefs back in 2017 for a 2018 fifth-round pick.
Kansas City elected to decline Erving’s fifth-year option. He was in the final year his four-year, $9.429 million rookie contract when he agreed to a two-year extension worth up to $15.7 million back in 2018.
The Chiefs declined his contract option this offseason and he later signed on with the Cowboys.
In 2020, Erving has appeared in one game for the Cowboys.
