The Jacksonville Jaguars announced that they place rookie left tackle Walker Little on their Reserve/COVID-19 list Monday. His addition to the list makes him the lone player on it at the moment, and he’s the first to go on it this regular season.
Little heading to the Reserve/COVID-19 list means he either tested positive for COVID-19 or came in close contact with someone that did. If he’s vaccinated, he could return within a matter of days at the earliest as it takes two negative tests that are 24 hours apart to return. If he’s unvaccinated, he will have to isolate himself for at least 10 days.
Little has yet to make his regular season debut, and the Jags have elected to make him inactive in Weeks 1-2. If Little is unvaccinated, he’d be guaranteed to miss their next game, too, which will be against the Arizona Cardinals.
The Jags selected Little with the 45th pick in the draft this April, and he’s a player they have high hopes for despite him being inactive this regular season. He at least received significant playtime in the preseason where he got multiple starts with Jags left tackle Cam Robinson temporarily out.
