According to Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald, Dolphins running back Malcolm Perry announced he had donated plasma after recovering from the virus. Linebacker Andrew Van Ginkel also donated plasma after recovering.

The Dolphins have placed three players on the reserve/COVID-19 list, meaning they’ve either tested positive or are quarantining after coming into contact with someone who has. One of them, defensivse tackle Benito Jones, has been activated from the list. The other two, long snapper Blake Ferguson and cornerback Cordrea Tankersley remain in the league’s protocol before they can return.
