The Jets added two more players to the reserve/COVID-19 list on Thursday, as QB Joe Flacco and RG Laurent Duvernay-Tardif became the latest additions.

New York now has 21 people sidelined due to COVID-19 reasons, including head coach Robert Saleh. With Flacco out, Mike White will be Zach Wilson’s backup this Sunday; White just came off the COVID list after a lengthy stay on it that also included a bout with a non-COVID illness.

New York is also down both starting guards and two starting corners. The Jets’ safety depth has also been decimated, though not just by COVID-19 list designations.

That’s why the team also signed Kai Nacua on Thursday.

The safety was most recently on the 49ers’ practice squad and played under Saleh last season in San Francisco. Nacua joined the Browns as an undrafted free agent in 2017. The BYU product has also spent time with the Ravens, Panthers and Colts.

He has 15 tackles, one TFL and one QB hit in 22 career games.
