The Houston Texans have another player to place on COVID-19 reserve ahead of their Week 16 game with the Cincinnati Bengals Sunday at 12:00 p.m. at NRG Stadium.

The club announced that safety Eric Murray will be placed on the COVID-19 reserve and miss Sunday’s game.

Houston placed outside linebacker Whitney Mercilus on the COVID-19 reserve on Friday.

As Murray and Mercilus’ COVID-19 replacements, the Texans will call up receiver Steven Mitchell and cornerback Anthony Chesley from the practice squad.

Mitchell has caught three passes for 38 yards through four games this season. Chesley has been activated for two games in 2020 and has played nine snaps on special teams.
