JACKSONVILLE – The Jaguars have placed first-year offensive lineman Ryan Pope and second-year offensive lineman Jawaan Taylor on the team's reserve/COVID-19 list.
The reserve/COVID-19 list is a new reserve category created by the NFL for a player who either tests positive for COVID-19 or who has been quarantined after having been in close contact with an infected person or persons.
Clubs are not permitted to comment on a player's medical status other than referring to roster status. Clubs may not disclose whether the player is in quarantine or is positive for COVID-19.
Clubs, club personnel, other players and player-agents are not permitted to disclose a player's reason for placement on reserve/COVID-19 or a player's status with regard to such illness.
However, players are permitted to disclose their own medical information.
The Jaguars on Monday placed four other players on the reserve/COVID-19 list: rookie cornerback Luq Barcoo, rookie defensive tackle DaVon Hamilton, rookie cornerback Josiah Scott and rookie offensive lineman Tre'Vour Wallace-Simms. The team on Tuesday also moved rookie fullback Connor Slomka to the active roster; he had been placed on the active/non-football injury list Monday.
