The Los Angeles Chargers activated offensive tackle Trey Pipkins from the COVID-19/reserve list Saturday. The second-year lineman, who has started the last three games at right tackle, was placed on the list Friday after the team cancelled practice on Thursday after an unidentified player tested positive. Offensive guard Ryan Groy remains on the COVID-19/reserve list.
The Chargers head to Denver looking to end their AFC West losing streak after a morale-boosting victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars last week.
Denver Broncos coach Vic Fangio said Saturday that both tackle Demar Dotson and guard Austin Schlottmann have been cleared to start in Sunday's game against the Los Angeles Chargers after consecutive negative COVID-19 tests. The two were initially told to isolate Friday after Broncos guard Graham Glasgow had tested positive for the virus and was moved to the reserve/COVID-19 list.
