The number of Arizona Cardinals players on the reserve/COVID-19 list has grown to eight.
Coach Kliff Kingsbury said Thursday from training camp in Glendale, Ariz., that center Rodney Hudson, offensive linemen Justin Pugh and Kelvin Beachum, and wide receivers Andy Isabella and KeeSean Johnson are in the COVID-19 protocols and would be put on the list.
They will join wide receiver Rico Gafford, offensive lineman Shaq Calhoun and cornerback Lorenzo Burns.
NFL Network reported Thursday that more than 90 percent of the Cardinals’ players have been vaccinated. Fully vaccinated players can return to the team after two negative tests taken 24 hours apart. Under league rules, unvaccinated players are required to isolate for at least 10 days.
The Cardinals are scheduled to open the 2021 season on Sept. 12 against the Tennessee Titans in Nashville. Their preseason schedule begins with a home date against the Dallas Cowboys on Aug. 13.
