JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – The entire Jaguars defensive coaching staff is working away from TIAA Bank Field on Tuesday due to COVID-19 protocols, according to a report.

The NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero reported that contract tracing protocols are ongoing.

It is uncertain on what effects, if any, this will have on Sunday’s game against the Browns.

The only COVID-19-related news out of Jacksonville on Tuesday was that the team placed kicker Chase McLaughlin on the reserve/COVID-19 list.

On Sunday, the team announced that defensive line coach Jason Rebrovich wouldn’t coach in the Steelers game due to COVID-19 protocols.
