Two key members of the Lions Offense have been placed in the Reserve / COVID-19 list.
The NFL’s Daily Transaction Report states that wide receiver Kenny Golladay and tight end TJ Hockenson have both been placed on the list by the team. Defensive back Jalan Elliott, defensive back Amani Oruveri and puncture Aryan Sipos are also going to be out of action as they have either 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 wait up to 10 days of positive testing or test negative twice in a 24-hour interval within at least five days after positive testing. Players who experience symptoms will be out for at least 10 days and must be 72 hours without symptoms. A doctor’s approval is also required for players in both categories.
Players who are in close contact with an infected person and test negative can return after a second negative test within 24 hours of receiving the results of the first one. Also, they will be tested daily till next week.
Goolday caught 65 catches for 1,190 yards and 11 touchdowns last season. Hockenson, a 2019 first-round pick, had 32 catches for 367 yards and two touchdowns before landing on injured reserve.
