Should probably add Brian Allen to this list, though I believe he has fully recovered at this point.

I don't read that as Lewis HAS the virus. I read it that Lewis is opting out of the 2020 season. Sure would like more information on that.
I think this is list if they test positive this not counting as an IR? Opting out is just opting out? Idk, I know Brewer opted out but he’s not on this list. But maybe not updated yet. Color me confused.

Ok here is explanation. Not necessarily positive just possibly in quarantine. Either way, not good. Put edit in first post to clarify.

This new reserve list category was created for a player who either tests positive for COVID-19 or who has been quarantined after having been in close contact with an infected person or persons. If a player falls into either of these categories, their club is required to immediately place the player on the reserve/COVID-19 list. Per agreed upon NFL-NFLPA policy, clubs are not permitted to comment on player's medical status other than referring to roster status. Clubs may not disclose whether player is in quarantine or is positive for COVID-19.

Chandler Brewer opted out, he is at high risk due to him having non Hodgkins lymphoma. Lewis and Hoecht are both on reserve/covid list. There are at least 2 Rams players that have had covid and recovered, Brian Allen and Whitworth. It could help the team if more players had it and recovered already as they possibly will be immune.

RE: Lewis... He probably tested positive, a symptomatic, maybe. Has to quarantine, join later.

That wouldn’t be too bad of an outcome, if the case.

If a player is going to get covid, it is better to get it now vs during the season.

So what's the official Covid IR quarantine timetables? Min 14 days or longer if necessary?

I figured we had 4 players either opting out or on the covid19 reserve list when we cut down to 84 rather than 80. This looks like conformation.

It would be better to cut Brewer rather than have him opt out. That way he could change his mind and play, (either for us or someone else), should he change his mind during the season.

Not sure on the NFL regulation on this, but for the general public quarantine is 14 days from exposure or 10 days from onset of symptoms and 24 hrs symptom free. It seems I remember something about 21 days for the NFL, not sure if it was a minimum or maximum.

Michael Hoecht is on that list and I hope he is able to return. This kid is legit and IMO can provide quality depth behind AD. He's got strength and similar speed and quickness as AD. If AD can mentor this kid he has all the tools to become a true beast. Hoecht can also play outside and IMO would provide security should the Rams lose Ebukam as a FA. Moving Hoecht outside will allow the Rams to move Lewis into that SAM OLB role. This is the kind of positional versatility that the Rams have in their roster. It will serve them well during the COVID season and into the future. I was surprised that Hoecht wasn't drafted.

I'm not surprised Brewer opted out and think it's a wise decision on his part. Just gives him another year to train and IMO he has a future in the NFL I only hope he can stay with the Rams.
