CHARLOTTE – The Panthers on Monday placed rookie defensive end Yetur Gross-Matos on the reserve/COVID-19 list.
Teams may not disclose whether a player has tested positive for COVID-19 or whether he is quarantining because of close exposure to someone who has tested positive.
Gross-Matos is the first player the Panthers have put on the list since cornerback Rasul Douglas on Oct. 23.
A second-round pick out of Penn State, Gross-Matos made two tackles on 41 defensive snaps during Sunday's loss in Minnesota. He's totaled 16 tackles with 1.5 sacks and one forced fumble through eight games.
