On Saturday, the Detroit Lions activated three players from the reserve/COVID-19 list: tight end T.J. Hockenson, cornerback Amani Oruwariye and punter Arryn Siposs. All three players were placed on the list 10 days ago.

The biggest name there is obviously 2019 first-round pick T.J. Hockenson. The Lions tight end could benefit the most from as much training camp as possible, seeing as he ended his rookie season last November after a severe ankle injury. It’s unclear if he’ll be ready to go right away, but he’ll now be cleared to enter the team facility. Keep an eye out to see if he passes his physical next to avoid the Physically Unable to Perform list.

Amani Oruwariye will likely now enter the battle for the CB3 job on the roster after finishing his rookie season strong as a reserve. Meanwhile, Siposs will compete with Jack Fox for the punter job this year.

With these three players off the list, the Lions only have one player remaining on their reserve/COVID-19 list, undrafted rookie safety Jalen Elliott.

In even better news, across the NFL no players were added to the COVID-19 list.
