The Jets placed defensive lineman Folorunso Fatukasi on the COVID-19/Reserves list on Thursday, SNY's NFL Insider Ralph Vacchiano confirmed.

Fatukasi did not test positive, according to a source per Vacchiano. He was placed on the list because he was deemed a "close contact" of someone who tested positive, and will not play against the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday.

He was drafted by the Jets in the sixth round of the 2018 NFL Draft out of the University of Connecticut. Fatukasi has two sacks, 19 tackles, and a forced fumble in 13 games (six starts) this season. Over 28 career games, he's made three sacks and 33 tackles.
