Two key members of the Lions Offense have been placed on the reserve list / COVID-19.
The NFL’s daily transaction report brings word that wide receiver Kenny Golladay and tight end TJ Hockenson have both been put on the list by the team. Defensive back Jalen Elliott, defender Amani Oruwariye and punter Arryn Siposs will be out of action because they tested positive or are in quarantine due to close contact with an infected person.
If players have tested positive, they must follow certain protocols to return. Asymptomatic players should expect 10 days of the positive test or negative test twice within 24 hours at least five days after the positive test. Symptomatic players will be at least 10 days old when experiencing symptoms and should have 72 hours asymptomatic. A doctor’s permission is also required for players in both categories.
Participants who are in close contact with an infected person and test negative may return after the second negative test within 24 hours of receiving the results of the first one. They are tested daily for next week as well.
Golladay had 65 catches for 1,190 yards and 11 touchdowns last season. Hockenson, a pick of the first round of 2019, had 32 catches for 367 yards and two touchdowns before landing on the injured reserve.
