49ers place RB Jeff Wilson on reserve/COVID list, cut two others

Jul 30, 2020 at 1:59 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers have announced that running back Jeff Wilson Jr. has been placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list. He joins wide receiver Richie James Jr., who was placed on the list on Monday.

Wilson was among the players who reported for COVID-19 testing on Tuesday.

The reserve/COVID-19 list has been created for a player who either tests positive for COVID-19 or has been quarantined after having been in close contact with an infected person or persons. If a player falls into either of these categories, his club is required to immediately place the player on the reserve/COVID-19 list.

Clubs are not permitted to comment on a player's medical status other than referring to the roster status and may not disclose whether the player is in quarantine or is positive for COVID-19.

San Francisco also announced two other moves. The team released offensive lineman Leonard Wester and waived defensive lineman Alex Barrett.

The moves get the 49ers below the 80-man roster requirement that must be met before August 16.
