The Rams aren’t the only team with COVID-19 concerns heading into Sunday’s game against the Seahawks. Seattle is also in danger of missing a couple of key players, too. The Seahawks announced Thursday that they have placed Tyler Lockett and Alex Collins on COVID-19 reserve.

They haven’t yet been ruled out for the game because they can return if they test negative twice at least 24 hours apart, but they’re also not certain to play now, either.

Lockett would be a significant loss for Seattle. He’s the team’s leading receiver with 1,023 yards, which is 270 more than the next-closest player, DK Metcalf (753 yards). He’s also scored five touchdowns and been Russell Wilson’s favorite target, seeing 93 passes thrown his way.

Collins is the Seahawks’ leading rusher, gaining 411 yards on 108 attempts with two touchdowns. Seattle’s backfield has been decimated by injuries all season, so this potential absence by Collins won’t help.

The Rams are still in much greater danger of missing starters Sunday, seeing as they have 16 players on COVID-19 reserve, including Jalen Ramsey, Rob Havenstein and Darrell Henderson Jr.
