Vikings defensive end Ifeadi Odenigbo was placed on the Reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday, and now seven players from the team are on the list.

Odenigbo had seven sacks last season and is expected to replace Everson Griffen as the team’s starting right end. The Vikings also put second-year linebacker Cameron Smith and second-year offensive tackle Oli Udoh on the Reserve/COVID-19 list.

The three players join four rookies who also are on the Reserve/COVID-19 list, including first-round wide receiver Justin Jefferson. The others are tackle Blake Brandel, safety Brian Cole II and offensive lineman Tyler Higby.

The Vikings, like all teams, aren’t saying whether players placed on the list actually have COVID-19 or have been quarantined after having been in close contact with someone infected. 

Many Vikings reported earlier this week for COVID-19 testing. Others reported late last week.
