LAS VEGAS (KLAS) – It is a simple note on the Raiders transaction list on Thursday. It reads: “Placed DE Maxx Crosby and RB Rod Smith on Reserve/COVID-19 list.”
Crosby is the Raiders first projected starter to be put on the COVID-19 list. He led the team last year with 10 sacks. It’s likely that the players will miss a couple weeks of training camp until they are cleared to return. Players can go on the list with a positive test, or recent exposure to somebody who has tested positive.
