The New England Patriots placed two starting offensive linemen, left tackle Isaiah Wynn and left guard Michael Onwenu, on the COVID-19 list Tuesday.

If Wynn and Onwenu are vaccinated, they only need to return two negative tests 24 hours apart to return. The Patriots visit the Houston Texans Sunday for Week 5.

Wynn, 25, has played 22 career games (all starts) since the Patriots made him their first-round draft choice in 2018. Onwenu, 23, was a sixth-round pick in 2020 and has started all 20 of New England’s games since then, splitting time at right tackle and both guard spots.
