The Jacksonville Jaguars placed quarterback Gardner Minshew on the reserve/COVID-19 list, the team announced Sunday.

Minshew was one of five Jaguars given the designation, along with running back Ryquell Armstead, tight end Charles Jones, wide receiver Michael Walker, and safety Andrew Wingard.

The 24-year-old is the second starting signal-caller to hit the reserve list, as the Detroit Lions added Matthew Stafford on Saturday.

A 2019 sixth-round pick, Minshew took over the Jaguars' starting role last year following Nick Foles' early-season injury. He finished his rookie campaign with a 6-6 record while completing just over 60% of his pass attempts for 3,271 yards and 21 touchdowns against six interceptions.

The Washington State product is now set to be Jacksonville's Day 1 starter after the club traded Foles to the Chicago Bears this offseason.

Jacksonville also removed three names from their reserve/COVID-19 list Sunday, including second-year offensive tackle Jawaan Taylor.

The new reserve list is for any player who either tests positive for COVID-19 or is quarantining after coming in close contact with an infected person. Players who had contact with an infected individual may return to camp after three negative tests over a four-day span.
