The Houston Texans placed second-year offensive lineman Max Scharping on the NFL’s COVID-19 reserve list hours after they closed their practice facility Wednesday.

The team was notified of a positive test on Tuesday night and said the player immediately self-isolated according to NFL protocols. Contact tracing is being conducted and the facility is underdoing “deep cleaning,” the Texans said in a statement.

“We are in close consultation with the NFL, as well as our team of independent doctors and specialists, and will follow their guidance regarding our scheduled bye week operations,” the team added. “The health and safety of our team, as well as our entire staff, are of highest priority.”
