Raiders offensive tackle Trent Brown has once again been placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list and he will likely not play on Sunday against the Chargers, according to MMQB’s Albert Breer.

Brown is still dealing with complications from his bout with COVID-19 last month when he tested positive and missed two full weeks of practice.

Earlier this week, the 6-foot-8, 350-pound Pro Bowl tackle was reportedly “wheeled out” of the locker room and hospitalized prior to the team’s game in Cleveland after an apparent mishap with an IV. Air had reportedly entered his bloodstream during the IV, sparking fears of a possible embolism, per reports.

Brown stayed the night in the Cleveland hospital before being released on Monday.

Head coach Jon Gruden had said earlier in the week that the team was “shaken up pretty good” from the incident.

Brown, who signed a four-year $66 million deal with the Raiders prior to the season, has not played since Week 5.

The NFLPA is reportedly investigating the incident.
