The Los Angeles Rams placed rookie wide receiver Tutu Atwell on the Reserve/COVID-19 list Monday.

Atwell, 21, was a second-round pick (57th overall) in the 2021 NFL Draft out of Louisville.

The Rams’ rookies reported to training camp on Sunday. According to the team, Atwell is following NFL protocols by isolating and participating in meetings remotely. He cannot practice until he is cleared.

Being placed on the Reserve/COVID-19 list means a player has either tested positive for the coronavirus or come in close contact with an infected person or persons.

Atwell caught 139 passes for 2,303 yards and 20 touchdowns in three years at Louisville. He topped the ACC with 1,272 receiving yards in 2019.
