Packers linebacker De’Vondre Campbell has been placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list. It is unknown whether Campbell is vaccinated or not. Even if he is not vaccinated, he may not miss any games, as the Packers are on a bye week.
The NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero reported the news via Twitter on Tuesday.
Five NFL players landed on the Reserve/COVID-19 list today — including #Packers LB De'Vondre Campbell — and they all tested positive, per the wire.

Unvaccinated players must test negative twice, 24 hours apart after a 10-day quarantine period. Vaccinated players, however, must only be asymptomatic and test negative twice in a 24 hour period, regardless of how long it takes. Being that the Packers’ next game is 12 days away, there is a good chance he will be able to return to the field, regardless of his status.
Campbell was a free agent signing after remaining unsigned following his stint with the Arizona Cardinals. He has had his best season by far, racking up 91 tackles, defending four passes, forcing two fumbles and collecting two interceptions in just 12 games.
