The Miami Dolphins activated left tackle Austin Jackson from the reserve/COVID-19 list on Saturday.

The 2020 first-round pick was placed on the list along with tight end Adam Shaheen on Sept. 6 after both tested positive.

Jackson, who is vaccinated, needed two negative tests separated by 24 hours to return to the active roster.

The Dolphins said Jackson will travel separately from the team to New England for Sunday’s season opener. He did not practice all week and is questionable for the game against the Patriots.

Jackson, 22, started 12 of his 13 games as a rookie last season.

Shaheen, who has been vocal with his anti-vaccination stance, must remain on the reserve/COVID-19 list for a minimum of 10 days.
