Miami’s Phillip Lindsay reportedly tested positive for the coronavirus, meaning all three Dolphins running backs on the 53-man roster are on the reserve/COVID-19 list.

Coming off a bye week, the Dolphins (6-7) have a five-game winning streak entering Sunday’s home game against the New York Jets (3-10).

NFL Network reported the news on Lindsay on Monday. Running backs Myles Gaskin and Salvon Ahmed landed on the COVID list on Friday and Saturday, respectively.

Gaskin, 24, leads the Dolphins with 526 rushing yards in 13 games. He also has 45 catches for 217 yards and has scored seven touchdowns (three rushing, four receiving).
