Jaguars Placing 12 Practice Squad Players On COVID-19 List


Tom Pelissero of NFL Media reports that the Jaguars are placing 12 practice squad players on the COVID-19 list. 

Here’s the full list:

  1. RB Nathan Cottrell
  2. LB Nate Evans
  3. LB Joe Giles-Harris
  4. WR Terry Godwin
  5. WR Josh Hammond
  6. T Kc McDermott
  7. T Austen Pleasants
  8. WR Trey Quinn
  9. DB Josh Nurse
  10. OT Jared Hilbers
  11. S Doug Middleton
  12. TE Ben Ellefson

Pelissero explains that this is a proximity issue from contact tracing, as only one player is known to have tested positive up to this point. 

Jacksonville reportedly has their practice squad players sit in a separate area during meetings in case one tests positive for exactly this reason. According to Pelissero, no active roster players were exposed and Sunday’s game against the Lions is still on as scheduled.

Pelissero adds that Jaguars suspended DE Josh Mauro is also being placed on the list.
