The Green Bay Packers are placing starting defensive tackle Kenny Clark on the reserve/COVID-19 list Thursday, coach Matt LaFleur confirmed.
The 26-year-old veteran’s status is in jeopardy for Sunday’s showdown in Baltimore between the Packers (10-3) and Ravens (8-5). If vaccinated, he needs two negative tests 24 hours apart in order to be activated.
Clark has started all 13 games this season, registering 42 tackles, 13 quarterback hits, four sacks and one fumble recovery.
A first-round pick by Green Bay in 2016 and a Pro Bowl selection in 2019, Clark has 277 tackles, 22.5 sacks, five fumble recoveries and four forced fumbles in 86 career games (72 starts).
Rookie T.J. Slaton is listed as the backup nose tackle on the Packers’ depth chart. The fifth-round pick from Florida has 15 tackles and one sack in 13 games.
