Dolphins put Jaylen Waddle on COVID-19 reserve

Mike Florio and Chris Simms assess the recent surge of COVID-19 cases throughout the NFL, but agree that the league is starting to come around on allowing positive, vaccinated, asymptomatic players to play.

Yet another high-profile NFL player is out because of the worsening COVID-19 situation.

Dolphins wide receiver Jaylen Waddle is going on the COVID-19 reserve list.

The Dolphins now have five players on COVID-19 reserve: Waddle, safety Jevon Holland and running backs Phillip Lindsay, Salvon Ahmed and Myles Gaskin.

A rookie first-round pick, Waddle is the Dolphins’ leading receiver with 86 catches for 849 yards and four touchdowns. DeVante Parker and Albert Wilson would be expected to be the top two receivers for the Dolphins on Sunday against the Jets.
