Jaylen Waddle

Miami Dolphins rookie wide receiver Jaylen Waddle has tested positive for COVID-19 and is going on the COVID reserve list, according to NFL Network reporter Ian Rapoport. Waddle joins a list of recent positive tests that includes Myles Gaskin, Salvon Ahmed and Phillip Lindsay.

Waddle is likely out for Sunday’s game against the New York Jets and this will pause his impressive rookie season, which has him breaking franchise records and threatening NFL rookie record as well.

Waddle has hauled in 86 receptions for 849 yards and four touchdowns this season for Miami.
