(AP) The New Orleans Saints have placed two players on their COVID-19 reserve list.
Second-year linebacker Kaden Ellis and veteran long snapper Zach Wood are the first two Saints players to receive the designation since players began reporting to team headquarters early last week.
The designation does not necessarily mean the players have had a positive COVID-19 test. They also could have been asked to isolate because of potential exposure. NFL clubs do not have to specify which is the case.
Ellis was a seventh-round pick out of Idaho in 2019. He played in three games as a rookie before a season-ending knee injury.
Wood has played in every game for the Saints the past three seasons.
