Los Angeles Rams: 9 more Rams end up on COVID-19 list
That’s not ideal and this sort of situation doesn’t appear to be isolated to the Rams right now. Unfortunately, multiple franchises are attempting to figure out what to do with their rosters that have been hit hard because of COVID-19.
According to a tweet from ESPN’s Field Yates, the Rams now have a total of 25 players on the COVID list. Yates mentioned that the Cleveland Browns and Washington Football Team currently have 21 players each on the list.
The Rams are now up to 25 players on the Reserve/COVID-19 list.
The Browns are and Washington FT are up to 21 players.
All three are still scheduled to play this weekend.

That’s far from ideal.
It’s unclear what actions the NFL will take as teams try to figure out their next steps and where to go from here. The Rams are supposed to host the Seattle Seahawks this Sunday despite the issues with their roster.
We’ll see if the games continue on as scheduled.
