Punahou graduate, Indianapolis Colts defensive tackle DeForest Buckner has been placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list, the team announced Wednesday.
Earlier on Friday the NFL Network reported Buckner is on the list due to a positive test. It is not a “high risk” tracing scenario, meaning the Waianae native will miss Sunday’s game against the Tennessee Titans.
Per NFL rules, he will be out 10-14 days depending on if he is symptomatic or not.
In his first season with Indianapolis, Buckner has 41 tackles, 2.5 sacks, and 16 QB-Hits through 10 games.
