ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) — The Detroit Lions put cornerbacks Ifeatu Melifonwu and Mark Gilbert along with linebacker Tavante Beckett on the reserve/COVID-19 list.

The moves Saturday put seven players on the list and they join running back Jamaal Williams, safety Tracy Walker, cornerback Bobby Price and center Evan Brown.

Detroit promoted a slew of players from the practice squad to potentially play Denver on Sunday, including running back Craig Reynolds to add depth at the position already without D’Andre Swift due to a shoulder injury.
