Dolphins place three on reserve/COVID-19 list
Two defensive starters were among three players added to the reserve/COVID-19 list Thursday by the Miami Dolphins.
Linebacker Kyle Van Noy and defensive tackle Christian Wilkins were placed on the list along with undrafted rookie receiver Matt Cole.
Placement on the list means a player has either tested positive for the coronavirus or came in close contact with an infected person.
The Dolphins (5-3) also announced the return of rookie wideout Lynn Bowden Jr. from the reserve/COVID-19 list ahead of Sunday’s game against the visiting Los Angeles Chargers (2-6).
Van Noy, 29, has 33 tackles, two sacks and two fumble recoveries in seven games (six starts) in his first season with Miami. He split his first six seasons with Detroit and New England, winning two Super Bowls with the Patriots.
Wilkins, 24, has 28 tackles, one sack and one interception in eight games (six starts) this season. He was Miami’s first-round pick (13th overall) in the 2019 NFL Draft out of Clemson.
