Broncos DC Ed Donatell back home recovering after COVID-related hospitalization

  Broncos DC Ed Donatell back home recovering after COVID-related hospitalization Broncos defensive coordinator Ed Donatell required hospitalization after contracting the coronavirus, according to the team. The second-year Denver DC was hospitalized last week but discharged Sunday. Donatell, 63, has been battling COVID-19 symptoms since Oct. 31 and has missed the past three games. Donatell, who is in his third stint with the franchise, is one of a few Broncos staffers to have contracted the virus. Running backs coach Curtis Modkins did so in October, and offensive line coach Mike Munchak was in the team’s COVID protocol.

The Chiefs have placed WR Mecole Hardman on the Reserve/ COVID -19 list , per ESPN’s Field Yates. Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Mecole Hardman scores a touchdown during the first half of an NFL football game against the Baltimore Ravens, Monday, Sept.

Wide receiver Mecole Hardman was been placed on the team’s reserve/ COVID -19 list Wednesday afternoon, according to the NFL transaction report. Players designated for the list have either tested positive for COVID -19 or, as is more frequently the case, came into close contact with someone who

Mitchell Schwartz has seen his iron-man run stop this season, having missed time due to injury. The Chiefs will now be without their ace right tackle for a while.

Kansas City placed Schwartz on IR Saturday. This move will sideline the All-Pro blocker for at least three more games. Schwartz is dealing with a back injury — one that has shelved him since Week 6.

Prior to the October injury, Schwartz had not missed a game in eight seasons. He had started four years with the Browns and another four with the Chiefs. Kansas City gave Schwartz an extension in the process, relying on his stability as Eric Fisher dealt with an injury last season. Both Fisher and Schwartz landed on Kansas City’s reserve/COVID-19 list recently, but Fisher will be back in action against Las Vegas. Schwartz will not.

Vikings OL Dru Samia tests positive for COVID-19

  Vikings OL Dru Samia tests positive for COVID-19 Vikings offensive lineman Dru Samia has tested positive for COVID-19. Contact tracing is being performed, and Samia and anyone deemed a high-risk contact will not be permitted to travel with the team for tomorrow night’s game against the Bears. © Trevor Ruszkowski-USA TODAY Sports Samia, a 2019 fourth-rounder, started four games for Minnesota earlier this year before returning to a reserve role. But the Vikings just released Pat Elflein and now find themselves without their top backup at guard. Plus, there is a good chance that there will indeed be high-risk contacts given the nature of O-line/D-line play.

Carey Mecole Hardman (born March 12, 1998) is an American football wide receiver and return specialist for the Kansas City Chiefs of the National Football League (NFL). On November 11, 2020, Hardman was placed on the reserve/ COVID -19 list after coming into 70 Kelechi Osemele ( IR ).

The Kansas City Chiefs placed wide receiver Mecole Hardman on the reserve/ COVID -19 list . The Chiefs are on a bye this week, so Hardman may not wind up missing any time. He's averaging 3.7 targets per game and has yet to reach 100 yards in any game this season.

The Chiefs also removed Mecole Hardman from their reserve/COVID list. They had placed the second-year wideout on the virus list last week. Hardman should play a key role against the Raiders, with Sammy Watkins set to miss the AFC West rivals’ Week 11 rematch.

Kansas City is also activating Alex Okafor and defensive back L’Jarius Sneed from IR. Okafor worked as a starter last season, but a midseason injury knocked him out for the team’s Super Bowl push. A hamstring injury sidelined Okafor this season. A fourth-round rookie, Sneed played well early this year but suffered a broken collarbone in September.

Bills TE Tommy Sweeney done for season due to COVID-19 complications .
Sweeney has developed myocarditis, a heart condition which is not uncommon with COVID-19 infections. It’s an inflammation of the heart, and is one of the main concerns with athletes getting the virus. Jaguars running back Ryquell Armstead had to be hospitalized twice and was enduring major symptoms before he was ultimately ruled out for the season last month. Fortunately, most diagnoses for NFL players have meant an absence of only a game or two, but there are still the possibility of complications even for elite athletes.
