Tom Pelissero of NFL Media reports that six NFL players were placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list on Sunday.

The full list includes:

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.

Hilliard, 25, wound up signing on with the Browns as an undrafted free agent out of Tulane. He agreed to a three-year, $1.71 million contract with the Browns but was waived coming out of the preseason and re-signed to their practice squad. 

The Browns eventually promoted Hilliard to their active roster before placing him on injured reserve in December. Cleveland brought Hilliard back on a one-year exclusive rights deal this offseason. 

In 2019, Hilliard appeared in 14 games and recorded 13 rushing attempts for 49 yards (3.8 YPC) and two touchdowns to go along with 12 receptions for 92 yards receiving (7.7 YPC) and no touchdowns, while also gathering 421 kickoff return yards and 107 punt return yards.
