Raiders under investigation for COVID-19 issues

After a number of issues with COVID-19 protocols and news that two players were placed on the Reserve/COVID-19 list this week, the Las Vegas Raiders are under investigation by the NFL and the NFL Players Association, NFL Network reported.

Coming off their bye week, Raiders right tackle Trent Brown was placed on the COVID-19 list Wednesday. Rookie cornerback Damon Arnette went on the list earlier this week, but he has been on injured reserve. Defensive tackle Maurice Hurst was just activated from the list.

According to the report, multiple uses of the Reserve/COVID-19 list is subject to investigation.

The Raiders have been involved with a number COVID-19 related problems already this season. The team previously was under investigation for unauthorized locker room access in September that was in violation of COVID-19 protocols, and was fined $50,000 for that incident.

That issue came about around the same time that quarterback Derek Carr was one of multiple players to show up at a fundraising event without protective masks. Carr and eight players eventually were fined.

“We obviously take responsibility for this,” Raiders owner Mark Davis told the Las Vegas Review-Journal at the time. “You don’t like seeing this. I don’t know that it’s actually been built into our memories that you have to wear a mask. Our organization takes it very seriously.”

The team’s issues with masks goes back even further. The NFL fined the Raiders $250,000 and head coach Jon Gruden $100,000 for not wearing their masks properly during a Week 2 win over the New Orleans Saints.
