The Falcons’ first-round draft pick is the first player to be placed on the league’s COVID-19 reserve list this season.

A.J. Terrell, a rookie cornerback chosen with the 16th overall pick in this year’s draft, was placed on reserve/COVID-19 today. Players can be placed on the reserve list either because they test positive for COVID-19 or because they’ve been exposed to someone who tested positive.

Although several players were placed on the reserve list during training camp, Terrell is the first case since the regular season started.

On the field, the Falcons’ secondary will miss Terrell because cornerback Kendall Sheffield and safety Ricardo Allen have both already been ruled out this week with injuries.

The Falcons have promoted cornerbacks Tyler Hall and Delrick Abrams and linebacker Edmond Robinson to the active roster for Sunday’s game against the Bears.

  1. At least he will have an excuse for social distancing from WRs when he returns. Man, it sucks being a Falcons fan…

    Sounds like the kid wasn’t sheltering. Messed up his rookie season now. Bummer.

    Ummmm no that’s just you assuming and you know what they say about assuming. It could easily be someone he lives with. As for messing up his rookie season that’s an over exaggeration. Hes missing a single game and maybe he misses 2 but hes not out for the season. His season will be fine.

  3. Hopefully he recovers quickly and fully…but after watching the news media i dont think anyone ever recovers from covid …
