Backups Latavius Murray and Dwayne Washington and fullback Michael Burton were placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Saturday and are out against the Carolina Panthers. Running backs coach Joel Thomas also will not travel for or coach in the game.

Kamara cannot return before next Sunday since he tested positive — putting his status for New Orleans’ playoff opener in jeopardy, unless the team can clinch a first-round bye.
