On Monday, the 49ers placed Armstead on the reserve/COVID-19 list. Kinlaw becomes the ninth 49ers player to land on the list.

Head coach Kyle Shanahan informed reporters on Tuesday that others were expected to join Armstead on the reserve/COVID-19 list. It is possible that others will join Armstead and Kinlaw, as the former was near teammates for Sunday's road game against the New Orleans Saints and for the trip back to the Bay Area.

"He did have some close contacts," Shanahan said. "When we get them all, they'll be on the list, so you'll see that."

49ers coaches and players have been working remotely this week, aside from reporting to the facility for daily COVID-19 testing.

"I just told the guys not to come in," Shanahan continued. "We were going to get together today and watch all of what happened on Sunday, and kind of put that game to rest. Now, we're just doing that all Zoom-wise. Then, each coach, each position is going to finish it up before we see them in person on Friday because we'll just meet them on the field on Friday."

Below is a breakdown of the previous 49ers players who have landed on the reserve/COVID-19 list.


The reserve/COVID-19 list has been created for a player who 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.
