Virtually untouched by covid in comparison to several other clubs in recent weeks, it looks like the Jets are up next.  Tight ends coach Ron Middleton will take over head coaching duties for this week’s contest while a whopping 17 players have been listed by the club as being in the protocol.

Safety Ashtyn Davis, tight end Kenny Yeboah and defensive lineman Jonathan Marshall were just added to a list tweeted out earlier by NFL insider Adam Schefter.

With this many players on the shelf, the league may consider moving the game from Sunday to mid-week as they did last week for clubs who were batting outbreaks.  With this being Wednesday, there is of course the chance for more positives in the coming days.
