Broncos K McManus to go on COVID-19 list

Denver Broncos kicker Brandon McManus announced Monday that the team will place him on the reserve/COVID-19 list after he was in close contact with someone who tested positive for the virus.

In his announcement, posted to Twitter, the 29-year-old said he expects to play Saturday when the Broncos (5-8) host the AFC East-leading Buffalo Bills (10-3).

Should McManus be unavailable to play, the Broncos have former XFL kicker Taylor Russolino on their practice squad.

Once he does return, McManus will be looking to improve on his performance in Sunday’s 32-27 win over the Carolina Panthers. He missed two of his four extra-point attempts — more than he’s missed in any entire season during his previous six campaigns with the Broncos.

On the season, he’s converted 21 of 24 PAT and 22 of 24 field goal tries.
