CHARLOTTE - The Panthers aren't coming back from their bye week at full strength.
Additional players will be added to the reserve/COVID-19 list Monday, and the facility will be closed Monday and Tuesday.
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. Names of the players being placed on the list won't be available until the team submits the transactions to the league.
The Panthers will still conduct virtual meetings and testing, and will continue to consult the medical experts and league personnel on any appropriate next steps.
Last week, the Panthers placed rookie defensive end Yetur Gross-Matos and practice squad defensive tackle Bruce Hector on the reserve/COVID-19 list.
They were the first two names added since cornerback Rasul Douglas on Oct. 23.
Players had last week off for the bye week, a late break in advance of the final four games of the season.
