Raiders safety Johnathan Abram will not be eligible to rejoin the Raiders from COVID-19 protocol in time for Sunday’s game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, a person with knowledge of the situation confirmed.

Abram on Friday was deemed a high-risk contact of teammate Trent Brown, who tested positive for COVID-19 on Tuesday. As a result, Abram was put on the COVID-19 reserve list on Thursday and will be quarantined for five days backtracked to his last close contact with Brown.
