The Buffalo Bills announced a series of roster moves on Saturday, including the placement of tight end Tyler Kroft on the Reserve/COVID-19 list after he tested positive for the coronavirus.

It's Kroft's second stint on the Reserve/COVID-19 list. He was also placed on it back in November after being deemed a "close contact" of cornerback Josh Norman, who had tested positive.

Due to the league's 10-day isolation protocols for positive tests, Kroft will not only miss Sunday's regular season finale against the Miami Dolphins, he also won't be eligible to return in time to play in their first playoff game next weekend.

The Bills also elevated four players from the practice squad for the game against Miami: cornerback Dane Jackson, defensive end Mike Love, running back Antonio Williams, and tight end Nate Becker.

Teams are allowed two weekly practice squad elevations, but can also elevate one player for every player on the active roster who is on the Reserve/COVID-19 list. Kroft and running back T.J. Yeldon are on the list, which allows them four elevations for this week's game.
