Las Vegas Raiders send starting O-linemen home amid COVID-19 concerns

The Las Vegas Raiders, sent home all five offensive linemen Wednesday following RT Trent Brown, being placed on the COVID-19 list, according to ESPN’s Paul Gutierrez.

The Raiders are coming off bye week and are scheduled to host the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday.

“I’m concerned. I’m really more concerned about Trent [and] his health than anything. This is COVID and I am concerned about anybody that has it or is near it,”said Las Vegas Raiders head coach Jon Gruden.

The league continues to communicate with teams especially those impacted by the coronavirus. If the players sent home on Wednesday test negative, they will return to the building and practice Thursday. If the players were determined “high risk” they would have to self-quarantine for a minimum of five days.
