Falcons Place DE John Cominsky On COVID-19 List, Add Two

According to Tom Pelissero, the Falcons have placed practice squad DT John Cominsky on their COVID-19 list after testing positive for the virus. 

The Falcons also promoted DT Chris Slayton and LB Edmond Robinson from the practice squad to their active roster on Saturday. 

Pelissero also reports that Falcons DL coach Tosh Lupoi and assistant Jess Simpson have been identified as coaches who were in “close contact” with Cominsky and did not travel with the team to Minnesota. 

The Falcons elected to practice virtually on Thursday as a precaution after Cominsky and an assistant coach tested positive, per Pelissero

Cominsky, 24, is a former fourth-round pick by the Falcons in the 2019 NFL Draft out of Charleston. He’s in the second year of his four-year, $3 million rookie contract and is set to make a base salary of $675,000 this season. 

In 2020, Cominsky has appeared in four games and recorded eight total tackles, one tackle for loss, no sacks, and one fumble recovery.
