Pair of former Alabama players placed on COVID list by their NFL teams
Two former Alabama players will be out for a period of time after they were placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list.
Chicago Bears S Eddie Jackson and Baltimore Ravens RB Mark Ingram will be out, their teams announced on Monday. The new roster designation was created this year for players who either test positive for COVID-19 or who have been quarantined after having been in close contact with an infected person.
Both have had productive careers.
Jackson was selected by the Bears in the fourth round of the 2017 draft. He has started all 56 games he has played in four seasons, registering 242 tackles, 10 interceptions, 28 pass breakups, seven forced fumbles and six fumble recoveries.
Jackson was chosen to the Pro Bowl each of the past two seasons and was voted first-team All-Pro in 2018 when he helped the Bears win the NFC North title with a 12-4 record. His six career defensive touchdowns are tied for the third most in franchise history with Lance Briggs behind only Charles Tillman (9) and Mike Brown (7).
Ingram, in his 10th season in the NFL, has seen limited action this season with 57 carries for 232 yards and two TDs. Last year, Ingram rushed for 1,018 yards as part of the most prolific running attack in the history of the league.
