Being placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list doesn’t necessarily mean that a player has tested positive for the virus. If a player has been around someone who is COVID-19 positive or is suspected of being infected, a team can place the player on the list.
NFL teams are not permitted to reveal if a player actually tests positive for the virus. Players can elect to elaborate on their condition if they choose to.
Rookie cornerback Josiah Scott said on Twitter Monday that his initial test came back positive, but subsequent tests were all negative.
My first test for Covid came back positive but then was re-tested multiple times the following days after that and those results have all been negative. My first test was a false positive guys so we’re all good😂just had to do the protocol https://t.co/WBRGQ7BTtC— Josiah Scott (@JosiahScott7) July 27, 2020
