The Tampa Bay Buccaneers today placed outside linebacker Shaquil Barrett and inside linebacker Devin White on the Reserve/COVID-19 list.

Per league rules, both will be ruled out for Sunday’s game against the Atlanta Falcons at Raymond James Stadium. Under NFL policy, this means that a player(s) either tested positive for COVID-19 or has been quarantined for coming in close contact with an infected person.

But according to NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero, it was White who tested positive for the Coronavirus.

Both White and Barrett have been instrumental to the team’s defensive success this season. White leads the team with 140 tackles and has recorded nine sacks. Barrett has 57 tackles and eight sacks, respectively.

Neither has missed a game this season before this weekend’s season finale.

Tampa Bay also placed defensive lineman Steve McLendon on the Reserve/COVID-19 list. He will also be unavailable for the game this Sunday.
