Three teams this past weekend were riddled with positive COVID-19 tests. One of those teams was the Browns, who the Raiders faced on Monday. That game was originally on Saturday, but postponed in the hopes all the possible positive tests would be revealed.

As of yet, no additional Browns players have been placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list. But an additional Raiders player has.

CB Brandon Facyson has headed to the reserve/COVID-19 list. He joins fellow cornerback Nate Hobbs who landed on the list the day of the Browns game, ruling him out.

Hobbs was replaced by Keisean Nixon while Facyson was replacing Trayvon Mullen who was placed in injured reserve last week.

Facyson is vaccinated, which means, per the protocol, he will need to test each day and should he test negative twice on consecutive days leading up to the team’s game on Sunday against the Broncos, he’ll be cleared to play. If not, the Raiders will be down to their third option at outside corner and possibly again without Hobbs as well.
