With a huge AFC West game against the visiting Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday night, the Raiders had to put two more starters on the NFL’s reserve/COVID-19 list on Tuesday.

Defensive end Clelin Ferrell and starting slot cornerback LaMarcus Joyner were added, joining right tackle Trent Brown and linebacker Cory Littleton.

It’s not known if Ferrell or Joyner were put on the list because they are close contacts to someone who tested positive for the coronavirus or if they tested positive. If there are close contacts, they have a chance to play Sunday, but would not be able to practice.

Littleton, who missed the Week 10 win over the Denver Broncos, is reportedly likely to miss the Chiefs’ game. It has been reported that Brown will be out until next month.

As is the reality of the NFL in 2020, the Raiders’ biggest game in four years has the added storyline of the COVID-19 list timeline.

UPDATE: Ferrell posted on social media he will miss Sunday’s game.
