On Monday, the Los Angeles Rams placed rookie receiver Tutu Atwell on the injured reserve/COVID-19 list.
The designation is trigged by a player who tests positive or has been in close contact with an infected person.
Atwell will be following the NFL protocol by isolating and participating in meetings remotely until cleared.
The former University of Louisville standout was selected in the second round to join an already loaded receivers group with veterans Robert Woods, Cooper Kupp, Van Jefferson, and acquired free agent DeSean Jackson. Atwell will be competing for a contributing role in Sean McVay’s offense and also for a potential spot as a punt returner.
