Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has been placed on the team’s Reserve/COVID-19 list.

Three other players join him on the list. Offensive lineman Jerald Hawkins, linebacker Vince Williams and running back Jaylen Samuels.

The players will not be allowed inside the UPMC Rooney Sports complex for the next five days.

That means if Roethlisberger is able to play, he’ll have to do so on Sunday without practice. That also assumes that he doesn’t contract the virus.

All players will be isolated for the five days and will take part in virtual meetings.

All players will have to pass COVID tests this week before beings activated for Sunday's game against Cincinnati at Heinz Field

This comes after tight end Vance McDonald tested positive for coronavirus on Monday.
