Chargers add Austin Ekeler, Jalen Guyton to COVID-19 list

The Los Angeles Chargers officially placed running back Austin Ekeler on the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday, while wide receiver Jalen Guyton also was designated to the list.

The Chargers now have 11 players on the reserve/COVID list, with multiple reports saying that Sunday’s road game against the Houston Texans is on schedule to be played.

Ekeler was reported to be headed to the list earlier this week, along with defensive end Joey Bosa. On Monday, the Chargers ruled Bosa out for Sunday, but Ekeler was not officially put on the list until Wednesday.

Chargers head coach Brandon Staley said Wednesday that he is hopeful Ekeler and Guyton both will end up playing Sunday.

Along with Ekeler, Guyton and Bosa, other Chargers players on the reserve/COVID list include center Corey Linsley, quarterback Chase Daniel, cornerback Tevaughn Campbell, linebacker Chris Rumph, defensive back Kemon Hall, wide receiver Andre Roberts, defensive end Joe Gaziano and safety Trey Marshall.

The Texans added three players to the reserve/COVID list Wednesday and now have 18 players listed. Players added Wednesday included wide receiver Brandin Cooks, kicker Ka’imi Fairbairn and linebacker Eric Wilson.
