Ian Rapoport of NFL Network dropped a bombshell on Wednesday when he reported that the Raiders are placing nearly their entire starting defense on the COVID-19 list because they’re considered high-risk close contacts.

Rapoport says at least eight starters are among several players in this group.

All of these players are still eligible to play in Week 11’s game against the Chiefs if they continue to test negative.

Players will remain on the list until they are medically cleared to return.
