The Miami Dolphins’ list of players infected with COVID-19 has increased again.

This time, it is rookie Jaylen Waddle who has reportedly tested positive for the virus.

It has certainly been a rough week for the Dolphins organization, as multiple other players on the team have also tested positive for COVID-19.

The Dolphins recently tried to arrest the situation by moving to enhanced COVID-19 protocols. However, it looks like the damage has already been done.

Of course, this does not mean that all those players will miss Miami’s Week 15 match against the New York Jets. Vaccinated players who test positive for COVID-19 are given the opportunity to “test out” of protocols.

Miami, who has won five straight games, needs all hands on deck as it looks to make it to the postseason for the first time since the 2016 season.
