Dolphins remove Van Noy from COVID-19 list
The Miami Dolphins removed linebacker Kyle Van Noy from the reserve/COVID-19 list on Saturday, clearing him to play in Sunday’s game against the Los Angeles Chargers.
Van Noy went on the list Thursday. Van Noy is believed to have been placed on the list due to contact tracing.
Starting defensive tackle Christian Wilkins was placed on the list at the same time and will miss the first game of his two-year career on Sunday. Receiver Matt Cole also was placed on the list Thursday and remains on it.
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.
Miami also activated receiver Antonio Callaway from the practice squad. Callaway hasn’t played in a game for the Dolphins but caught 51 passes for 675 yards and five touchdowns in 20 games (13 starts) with the Cleveland Browns over the past two seasons.
Callaway, a Miami native, hasn’t played in a game since last November, when he was suspended by the NFL for multiple violations of the league’s substance abuse policy. The Browns released him at that time.
The opportunity for the 23-year-old Callaway opened due to Preston Williams’ foot injury, which occurred during last Sunday’s victory over the Arizona Cardinals. Williams was placed on injured reserve on Wednesday.
