A league source told ESPN that on Friday, after the veteran guard tested positive for the coronavirus, the Minnesota Vikings added Todd Davis to the Reserve/COVID-19 list.
Davis is the second Viking player to enter the reserve/COVID-19 roster this week; the team appointed rookie cornerback Cameron Danzler on Wednesday. It is not clear if Dantzler has COVID-19 or has been in close contact with someone infected with the virus.

The Packers already know they will not be behind Aaron Jones and cornerback Kevin King, and they are still not sure who will kick them in Sunday’s game against the Vikings.
Mason Crosby (Mason Crosby) has the longest consecutive win streak among kickers (214 games), left calf (no kick) and back injuries. He did not practice on Wednesday and Thursday, but did some limited work on Friday, so he was classified as problematic.
The rookie Nick Vogel is waiting if necessary. Punter J. Scott (Punter JK Scott) also committed to scoring on the ground this week, but he is a regular ball-handler, and the Packers did not list backups in his depth chart.
