After playing in Week 1 and being ruled out in Week 2, Harrison Hand has been placed on the Reserve/COVID-19 list, the team announced Wednesday.

Hand is coming off a rookie season where he was decent in limited reps. His best game was the loss to the Saints, when he had two passes defended and an interception.

Hand played well in training camp this year. He was thought of as a player who could at least feature as depth in the cornerback unit. When Hand played in the Bengals game, he had two tackles. He was not targeted in the regular season opener. Leading up to the Week 2 game, Hand was dealing with a hamstring injury, as seen on the Vikings’ injury report.

Per the NFL’s COVID-19 protocols, players who are vaccinated will not be deemed high-risk close contacts (H/T NFL.com’s Grant Gordon). However, those vaccinated individuals can be tested daily for five days. Only unvaccinated players are at risk of missing games without a positive test. With that in mind, it remains to be seen how this will affect the Vikings’ roster as a whole.
