Chargers add two to the COVID list – NBC Los Angeles

The Los Angeles Chargers added lead rusher Austin Ekeler and receiver Jalen Guyton to their COVID-19 reserve list on Wednesday, increasing the list to 11 players.

Coach Brandon Staley described Ekeler, Guyton and backup quarterback Chase Daniel and defensive lineman Joe Gaziano, who were added to the list on Tuesday, as “everyday life”.

Star pass rusher Joey Bosa and cornerback Kemon Hall are the only players on the list “so far” for Sunday’s game in Houston, Staley said.

Ekeler leads the Chargers with 789 rushing yards and 10 rushing touchdowns. The league announced on Wednesday that he had been selected as the second deputy for the Pro Bowl.

Two other players who started at least half of the Chargers’ 14 games in 2021 are also on the COVID-19 reserve list – center Corey Linsley, who started all 14 and was selected for the Pro Bowl, and cornerback Tevaughn Campbell, who seven has started, including each of the last four.
