LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -- Raiders 2019 first-round draft pick Clelin Ferrell tested positive for COVID-19 this week, according to a report from NFL Network.

The defensive end was added to the Raiders COVID-19 reserve list Tuesday after testing positive, according to Ian Rapoport and Tom Pelissoro of NFL Network. Rapoport notes that Ferrell playing Sunday against the Kansas City Chiefs is unlikely.

Defensive back Lamarcus Joyner also joined the Raiders COVID-19 list after being in close contact with Ferrell, Rapoport said.

On Wednesday afternoon, the Raiders added seven more players to the COVID-19 reserve list:

  • S Johnathan Abram
  • DT Maliek Collins
  • DT Johnathan Hankins
  • DL David Irving
  • CB Isaiah Johnson
  • DE Arden Key
  • DT Kendal Vickers

The Raiders put Ferrell and Joyner on the list Tuesday, joining linebacker Cory Littleton, who tested positive last week, and right tackle Trent Brown, who tested positive last month. Brown was taken off the list briefly before going back on it when symptoms returned.
