Raiders' Jalen Richard placed on Reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday

Las Vegas Raiders running back Jalen Richard was placed on the Reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday.

What It Means:

This isn't necessarily a confirmation that Richard tested positive for the coronavirus - he simply could've been in close contact with someone that did. In any case, he'll now have to comply with the necessary protocols set forth by the NFL. If Richard did test positive, that could affect the rest of the running backs room - Josh Jacobs, Devontae Booker and Theo Riddick - if any are deemed high-risk and close-contact. Keep an eye out for updates on Richard and the rest of the team.

The Broncos - Vegas' Week 17 opponent - currently rank 27th in the NFl in adjusted net expected points allowed per run play.
