The Los Angeles Rams are dealing with some COVID-19 trouble this week ahead of Sunday’s game against the New York Jets, losing Nick Scott and Bobby Evans for Week 15. They were placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Friday and will miss the game, which opened the door for the Rams to promote a player from the practice squad as a replacement.

The team called up Jake Gervase to the active roster for Sunday against New York with Scott, the No. 3 safety, ruled out.

Gervase is a former undrafted free agent and appeared in two games for the Rams last year, playing 13 total defensive snaps.

Sean McVay said rookie JuJu Hughes will get increased reps against the Jets with Scott out, but Gervase could also get a chance to play.
