The Los Angeles Rams announced on Friday that they have placed safety Nick Scott and tackle Bobby Evans on the reserve/COVID-19 list. Both players were held out of practice Thursday, as were Justin Hollins, Brian Allen and Ogbonnia Okoronkwo, as a precaution after a member of the team tested positive for the coronavirus.

Scott has been the No. 3 safety behind John Johnson and Jordan Fuller during the absence of Taylor Rapp and Terrell Burgess, playing 152 (18%) defensive snaps this season. He’s also a core special teams player, and has been since being a seventh-round pick last year.

Evans is the Rams’ backup tackle behind Joe Noteboom and Rob Havenstein, but he’s played just one snap all year.

Being placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list doesn’t mean both players will be forced to miss Sunday’s game against the Jets. If they were just deemed close contacts to someone who has tested positive, they will be able to play as long as they continue to test negative.
