Four Jaguars' rookies were placed on the reserve/COVI-19 list Monday afternoon.
DaVon Hamilton, Josiah Scott, Luq Barcoo, and Tre'Vour Wallace-Sims are now on the reserve/COVID-19 list. Being placed on this list doesn't necessarily mean that these players tested positive for COVID. They could have just been potentially exposed to it prior to entering the team's facility. Either way, the Jaguars aren't allowed to say whether or not the players tested positive. But the players themselves can address the situation if they so choose.
That's precisely what Josiah Scott did yesterday. He claims that he had a false positive and has been tested multiple times since, and all the new tests have come back negative.
According to a report from ESPN, players can be activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list "when they are healthy." What exactly does that mean? I'm not sure. Major League Baseball requires two negative tests.
Jaguars' veterans report to training camp today, July 28th, and will be tested immediately upon arrival. Should any of the veterans reporting to camp come back positive or reveal that they've been exposed to the virus, they'll be placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list.
A third-round pick, DaVon Hamilton is expected to contribute immediately for the Jaguars' defensive line. Josiah Scott projected to be the primary backup at nickel and a valuable special teamer. Luq Barcoo and Tre'Vour Wallace-Sims were both longshots to make the team. How this will impact their rookie seasons and training camp practice availability remains to be seen.
