Eagles' Lane Johnson lands on NFL's COVID-19 list


Eagles right tackle Lane Johnson, linebacker Nate Gerry and offensive tackle Jordan Mailata have been placed on the NFL COVID-19 list, the team announced on Tuesday. 

The trio of players landing on the list means does not necessarily mean they have tested positive for COVID-19, although Johnson has confirmed in a statement that he has tested positive. Landing on the list means a player has either tested positive or has been in close contact with someone who did test positive.

Johnson, Gerry and Mailata are the first known Eagles player to land on the NFL COVID-19 list. 

The Eagles veterans reported to the NovaCare Complex this week for the start of training camp, where they were tested for COVID-19 upon arrival. 

To return to the NovaCare they will have to go through the NFL COVID-19 testing protocols. 

News of Johnson landing on the list was first reported by NFL Network's Mike Garafolo.  

More details to come.
