MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — The Minnesota Vikings have placed an important piece of its running attack on its reserve/COVID-19 list.
On Thursday, the team announced fullback C.J. Ham was placed on the list. NFL teams are not required to disclose whether players are in quarantine or are positive with COVID-19.
Along with the offensive line, Ham has been an important aspect of the team’s running attack, often providing big blocks to spring star running back Dalvin Cook for big gains.
