Packers Place QB Jordan Love & LB Krys Barnes On COVID-19 List


The Green Bay Packers announced Friday that they’ve placed LB Krys Barnes and QB Jordan Love on the reserve/COVID-19 list. 

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.

Matt Schneidman notes that Love is Barnes’ roommate, which is notable because Barnes tested positive. 

Love, 22, was a three-year starter at Utah State and earned All-Mountain West honors the past two seasons. The Packers traded up with the Dolphins to select him at No. 26 overall in this year’s draft. 

Love signed a four-year, $12,383,451 rookie contract that includes a $6,566,146 signing bonus. The Packers will have a fifth-year to pick up for the 2024 season.

During his three-year college career at Utah State, Love threw for 8,600 yards while completing 61.2 percent of his passes to go along with 60 touchdowns and 29 interceptions over the course of 38 games. He also rushed for 403 yards and nine touchdowns.
