But the kicker hopes to still play on Saturday.

If Brandon McManus thought Sunday was bad, he probably thought today was worse.

Due to a close contact with someone outside the building who tested positive for COVID-19, the kicker has been placed on the COVID-19/reserve injured list - which he announced today on Twitter.

McManus expects to be activated in time to play against the Bills on Saturday. If he is unable to play (due to testing positive), kicker Taylor Russolino is on the Broncos practice squad to take his place.

The news comes a day after McManus had one of his worst days on the field, missing two easy extra points.

He also made note of that on Twitter.

But then seemingly didn’t mean to.
