The Seahawks haven’t had many players go on the COVID-19 list in the last two seasons. But now two key players could be out for the team’s matchup with the Rams on Sunday.

Seattle has placed receiver Tyler Lockett and running back Alex Collins on the reserve/COVID-19 list, the team announced on Thursday.

If Lockett and Collins are vaccinated and tested positive, then they’ll be eligible to return with two negative tests separated by 24 hours.

Lockett is on the verge of setting a new career-high in receiving yards. He has 62 receptions for 1,023 yards with five touchdowns this season. He’s only missed one regular-season game in his seven-year career.

Collins is Seattle’s leading rusher with 411 yards on the ground this season. But Rashaad Penny took over as the Seahawks’ starter last week and rushed for 137 yards on 16 carries with a touchdown.

  1. Hope all the players are eligible for this grudge match. Something has to give with the NFL and their rules regarding this. Honestly, I would be in favor of empty stadiums as long as the games are played.

  2. This is ridiculous. With all these players testing positive, there have been ZERO news stories on their health. If covid was a real problem for these players you’d have reporters asking questions like how are they feeling, are they in medical danger, etc.

  3. Couldn’t happen to a nicer bunch of guys. Their season ends this weekend even when they come back.

  4. Russell to Pittsburgh next year. You heard it here first. How come there’s no flu this year?
