The deadline for players to opt out of the 2020 season is still being finalized by the NFL and NFLPA.

“We all understand the risk associated with COVID-19, and we will fully support any of our players and coaches that choose to opt out this season,” said head coach Doug Marrone. ” It is important for every individual to feel comfortable and to believe that they’re doing what’s right for themselves and their family. As an organization, we respect Al’s decision and are fully understanding.”

The Reserve/COVID-19 list is a new 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.

Clubs are not permitted to comment on a player’s medical status other than referring to roster status. Clubs may not disclose whether player is in quarantine or is positive for COVID-19.
