Raiders Place Five On COVID-19 List


The Las Vegas Raiders placed S Johnathan Abram, LT Kolton Miller, G Denzelle Good, C Rodney Hudson, and G Gabe Jackson on the COVID-19 list Thursday. 

The NFL is reportedly investigating the Raiders for potential violations of the COVID-19 protocols. 

None of the players have produced a positive test yet, but they’ve been in contact with Trent Brown, who has and has since been placed on the COVID-19 list.

The Raiders game against the Buccaneers has been moved out of the Sunday night spot, which gives the NFL some options in case they need to reschedule the game. 

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.

Abram, 23, is a former first-round pick of the Raiders out of Mississippi State back in 2019. He signed a four-year, $11,495,198 contract including a $6,380,144 signing bonus with the Raiders. 

Oakland will have a fifth-year option to pick up on Abram in 2022.

In 2020, Abram has appeared in five games for the Raiders and recorded 28 tackles, an interception, a fumble recovery and three passes defended.
