DENVER — 9NEWS has been compiling a running list of NFL players who, according to the league’s daily transaction wire, have been placed on the COVID-19 reserve list since training camp testing began July 23.

A player does not have to test positive to be on the list as he can also be placed if he becomes in contact with a person who has the virus.

In all, 9NEWS counts 110 players who have been placed on the COVID-19 reserve list, including Broncos’ fullback/tight end Andrew Beck, through Sunday, August 16. Beck returned to Broncos headquarters last week to work with the medical team and conditioning staff. He is expected to be activated Monday.

The Dolphins added their NFL-most 16th player case Saturday when defensive tackle Brandin Byant was placed on the COVID-19 reserve list, although he was activated the next day. Bengals receiver John Ross, a speedster who was the No. 9 overall pick in the 2017 draft, went on the COVID-19 reserve list Wednesday.

Many players have already been cleared from the virus list and activated back on their team’s active rosters.

There are another 67 players who have chosen to opt-out for the season because of virus concerns (68 counting free agent guard Larry Warford). The Broncos had two players opt-out for the season -- defensive tackle Kyle Peko and offensive tackle Ja'Wuan James.

Five teams have yet to place a player on the COVID-19 reserve list. Five other teams, including the Broncos, have one player on the virus list.
