The New York Jets officially placed DT Folorunso Fatukasi on the COVID-19 list on Thursday.
According to Brian Costello, Fatukasi was placed on the COVID list because he had close contact with someone outside the organization.
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.
Fatukasi, 25, is a former sixth-round pick of the Jets back in 2018. He’s currently in the third year of his four-year, $2.6 million contract.
In 2020, Fatukasi has appeared in 13 games for the Jets and recorded 37 tackles, two sacks, a forced fumble and two passes defended.
