The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic continues to interrupt the NFL season. There were 521 players placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list from Dec. 1-27, according to NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero, and 476 of those came on or after Dec. 13. (For context, 428 players went on COVID reserve all of last season, Sept. 1 to Super Bowl LV).

But since the NFL and NFLPA adopted new COVID protocols on Dec. 28 — reducing the mandated quarantine for positive players from 10 to five days — the number of players on COVID reserve has been declining, going from more than 230 last week to fewer than 120 as of Tuesday evening.

That’s not to say every team will avoid COVID disruptions as the NFL enters the final week of the regular season and then gears up for the playoffs. On Monday, several Eagles starters were among 12 players placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list. On Tuesday, the Bengals added five players, including Pro Bowl edge rusher Trey Hendrickson. But under the new rules, all of these players will be able to return for their team’s game this weekend (if healthy). 

Here’s an updated look at each team’s current COVID-19 situation as we head into Week 18, specifically which players are on COVID reserve:
