JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Josh Allen will miss Monday night’s preseason game against the Saints after being placed on the Reserve/COVID-19 list, the Jaguars announced.

Allen will miss the preseason game against the Saints as he enters that protocol.

The Reserve/COVID-19 list is a reserve category created by the NFL for a player who either tests positive for COVID-19 or who has been quarantined after having been in close contact with an infected person or persons.

Allen, entering his third year in the league, had one tackle in limited action in the preseason opener against the Browns. He’s coming off of a down 2020 season that ended with just 13 tackles and with Allen on injured reserve.
