Miami Dolphins rookie Jevon Holland out against New York Jets due to illness, source says

MIAMI – Miami Dolphins safety Jevon Holland was kicked out of Sunday’s game against New York Jets because of an illness, a league source told ESPN.

Holland was placed on Miami’s COVID-19/substitute list last week but was activated on Saturday with the hope of being able to play on Sunday. The Dolphins have listed him as problematic, but in the end, the rookie will miss a game for the first time in his NFL career.

For the first time in his professional career he also missed a game as a rookie Jaylen Waddle, the Dolphins’ top recipient, who was shortlisted for COVID-19 on Thursday and failed to clear protocol in time to take on the Jets.

Six Dolphins players spent time on this week’s COVID-19 roster, including Holland, Waddle and running back Myles Gaskin, Salvon Ahmed, Phillip Lindsay and Gerrid Doaks.

While Lindsay and Doaks did not clear the protocol, Gaskin and Ahmed were and will be playing on Sunday.

After starting the season 1-7, the Dolphins responded to a seven-game losing streak with a five-win streak, which they were able to stretch to six with a win over New York. With four games left of the season, Miami can’t lose another game if it wants to make it into the playoffs for the first time since 2016.
