NEW YORK (AP) — The Green Bay Packers have placed running back Jamaal Williams and rookie linebacker Kamal Martin on the reserve/COVID-19 list.

The move Tuesday comes one day after Packers rookie running back A.J. Dillon went on the same list.

The reserve/COVID-19 list is for a player who either tests positive for COVID-19 or who has been in close contact with an infected person.

A player is placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list when he either tests positive for COVID-19 or who has been in close contact with an infected person or persons.

In a separate move Tuesday, Green Bay also added former Utah State tight end Dax Raymond to the practice squad.

Raymond, a 6-5, 246-pound first-year player who prepped at Timpview, signed with the Chicago Bears as an undrafted free agent in 2019. He spent part of his rookie season on the Bears' practice squad and was released by Chicago this past spring before moving to training camp with the Pittsburgh Steelers.

The former third-team All-Mountain West pass catcher appeared in 32 games, including 22 starts, at Utah State, where he caught 72 passes for 873 yards (12.1 avg.) and three touchdowns. He will wear No. 80 for the Packers, the team said.
