San Francisco 49ers place Arik Armstead on COVID-19 reserve list

The San Francisco 49ers placed defensive lineman Arik Armstead on the coronavirus reserve list on Monday less than a day after Armstead played against the New Orleans Saints.

Armstead made three tackles for the 49ers in their 27-13 loss Sunday and hits the COVID-19 list during the team’s bye week.

The team has not announced whether or not Armstead has tested positive for the coronavirus as players who have come into close contact with someone who has tested positive can also be placed on the list.

Armstead becomes the fifth 49ers player in the last two weeks to be placed on the COVID-19 list, joining wide receivers Kendrick Bourne, Deebo Samuel and Brandon Aiyuk and left tackle Trent Williams, who all missed the 49ers’ 34-17 loss to the Green Bay Packers on Thursday, Nov. 5.
