Deontay Burnett lands on Reserve/COVID-19 list
The Philadelphia Eagles are placing wide receivers J.J. Arcega-Whiteside, John Hightower, and Deontay Burnett on the Reserve/COVID-19 list, according to a report from NFL insider Geoff Mosher. Arcega-Whiteside reportedly tested positive, while Hightower and Burnett were identified as close contacts.
Burnett was a standout in training camp this offseason and was promoted for a couple of games earlier in the season but has otherwise spent the year on the team's practice squad. He had three receptions for 19 yards in Philadelphia's Week 3 tie with the Bengals.
