Players must be placed on the COVID-19/reserve list if they test positive or have come in contact with an infected person.

He is coming off a dominant senior season at LSU, when he caught 111 passes for 1,540 yards and 18 touchdowns.

But the coronavirus pandemic is threatening to halt their gains. And in the long term, the decline of the U.S. may pose an even bigger obstacle. Doug Marrone on 12 Jaguars players landing on COVID - 19 list : ‘ I don ’ t think anyone ’ s being negligent ’.

The Jacksonville Jaguars had placed 12 players, including quarterback Gardner Minshew, on the COVID-19 reserve list as of Monday morning — the most among any team in the league.

While that can be concerning, Jaguars coach Doug Marrone doesn’t think that there is a particular reason why so many of his players have been added to that list.

“I don’t think anyone’s being negligent. I really don’t believe that,” Marrone said Monday, via ESPN. “Everyone understands what’s at stake, a roster spot or what’s going on or missing time … You’ve just got to be aware of your surroundings and where you are, and there’s a lot of different ways that you can come in contact with the virus.

“I feel good, I really do, about how we’re trying to educate our players, and I feel good about how they’re responding. Sometimes it’s just bad luck.”

Being placed on the COVID-19 reserve list doesn’t necessarily mean that a player has tested positive for the coronavirus. It can also be used for players who have come in contact with someone who has tested positive.

Marrone: This ‘can happen to any of us’

There were more than 4.6 million confirmed cases of the coronavirus in the United States as of Monday afternoon, according to The New York Times, and more than 155,500 deaths attributed to it. Florida had more than 491,000 confirmed cases — the second most in the country behind only California — had had more than 63,000 new cases over the past week, the most among any state in the country. Duval County, where Jacksonville is, had more than 21,000 cases.

  Rob Manfred shares circumstances under which he would pause a team’s season Despite the current outbreak among Marlins players, Rob Manfred says the situation isn't so out of hand that he would consider canceling the 2020 season yet. Commissioner Rob Manfred has shared the circumstances under which he would decide to pause a team’s season, though. “A team losing a number of players that rendered it completely non-competitive,” would be the circumstance, Manfred said on Monday.The commissioner said he believes the league can still keep players safe and says they remain optimistic.“We expected we were going to have positives at some point in time.

The Jaguars are the only team in the league with more than 10 players on the COVID-19 reserve list, and have double the amount on there than the Miami Dolphins and more than double than the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

“Some of the things that occur can happen to any of us,” Marrone said, via ESPN. “I mean, [if director of public relations Tad Dickman] tests positive tomorrow, I’m out for the day tomorrow [because] I’ve been in contact with Tad.

“Those things can occur, and I think these lessons that we’re learning now is something that’s going to actually be more beneficial for us when the season comes.”

While the coronavirus is still surging across the country and he’s lost several players for the moment, Marrone still isn’t worrying about the fate of the season this fall.

Doing so now, he said, isn’t worth his time.

“I don’t try to look so far ahead because I don’t know what this virus can do or pick up or however it may go,” he said, via ESPN. “What I look at is what we’re doing right now safety-wise … If I didn’t feel good, I wouldn’t be here if I thought there was a high risk. I think that’s what a lot of us are going through.”

In the case of Covid - 19 , China’ s scientists acted decisively and responsibly to protect the health of the Chinese people.

One Phillies coach, one clubhouse staffer test positive for COVID-19 .
The plan had been for the Phillies to resume play on Saturday. Whether that is now in jeopardy isn’t known. The organization has already dealt with some infections earlier this year, but managed to avoid further spread within the club.This is worrisome news on several levels. First and foremost, it’s concerning to see two more individuals in the game carrying this disease. Hopefully they’ll both make a swift and full recovery.Beyond that, it’s obviously concerning to see that spread (presumably) occurred between the teams.
