The Los Angeles Rams had a COVID-19 scare last week, placing both Nick Scott and Bobby Evans on the reserve list, forcing them to miss Sunday’s game against the Jets. The team was able to contain things for the most part, but they’re still working to avoid an outbreak.

On Tuesday, the Rams announced they have activated Scott from the reserve/COVID-19 list but have placed three other players on it, two of whom are on the practice squad.

They placed safety JuJu Hughes, who played against the Jets on Sunday, on the reserve/COVID-19 list, along with practice squad players Marquise Copeland and Derrick Moncrief. This comes one day after practice squad defensive tackle Eric Banks was also placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list.

Additionally, the Rams signed cornerback Dee Virgin to their practice squad and restored Jachai Polite to the practice squad, too, after he was on the reserve/COVID-19 list.

The Rams are off on Tuesday and will use contact tracing to isolate these COVID-19 cases, whether the players tested positive or were simply close contacts to someone who has. They’ve done a good job avoiding an outbreak this year, but this is the worst the situation has been for the Rams thus far.
