Rams coach Sean McVay announced the team had closed its facility in anticipation of more positive COVID-19 tests. It didn’t take long for news that another player is being placed on the COVID-19 reserve list.

Receiver Odell Beckham Jr. has tested positive for the virus, Josina Anderson reports.

The Rams played Monday night’s game without several key players. Cornerback Jalen Ramsey, tight end Tyler Higbee, running back Darrell Henderson, right tackle Rob Havenstein and cornerback Dont’e Deayon were added to the COVID-19 reserve list ahead of the game against the Cardinals.

That prompted the decision for the Rams to enter enhanced COVID-19 protocols, which includes working remotely Tuesday and Wednesday.

Beckham caught six passes for 77 yards and a touchdown in Monday’s victory and now has 15 receptions for 204 yards and three touchdowns in four games with Los Angeles.

  1. Are these guys tested prior to games? I’m sure the Cardinals feel awesome about playing against guys that tested positive this morning.

  2. So because he was presumably vaccinated, he played WITH Covid but wasn’t required to sit out. But a player who is unvaccinated is subject to daily testing and wouldn’t have been able to play…

    The rules are so arbitrary and random, they don’t make any sense and have nothing to do with health and safety. I’d love to see if the Superbowl QBs test positive for Covid if they are going to bother keeping them out of the game, or if they’re just going to wait a few days to release their status.

  3. This just once again goes to show you what a joke this “pandemic” is. Players test positive for the virus of the century, but play like that. But go on, keep feeding the narrative. Me? I’m just going to continue living life. Unvaxxed and unafraid.

  4. I was actually surprised that he didn’t catch COVID prior to last night – he has been having problems catching something. Now that he has it, it is why he was catching everything thrown his way last night.

  5. Remember that these players were on the same place with the rest of the team… Just saying

  6. A player faked a vaccination card, passed all the virus test and the league thought it was serious enough to suspense him for 3 game and the team was thinking of cutting him. Now if someone was proven positive and still played the game what kind of punishment should that be. Should last nights game be forfeited as well?

  7. It is curious how many players are testing positive the day after their game. Could have swore it took at least two days before you can test positive after exposure.
    Fortunate bit of luck with this…

    What a man!
    I want to be just like you!
    Wow, “unvaxxed and unafraid!”
    Can we call ourselves The Lone Wolves or something cool like that?

    Sadly, despite living in the so-called “Information Age,” it’s actually W I L L F U L I G N O R A N C E and a L A C K O F E D U C A T I O N that’s taken over the United States.

    Can’t really agree with you but your handle made me laugh out loud.

  11. I’m not scared, and I’m definitely not dumb.
    That’s the difference between me and you.
    Get vaxxed.

  12. All teams will likely go through COVID outbreaks so it better to get it out of the way early so players are available for the playoffs. This is not the end of the world for the Lions.

  13. i hope they’ll be ok. im really worried not just for them, but the entire cardinals tram after obviously being exposed…
