Arizona Cardinals activate Chandler Jones and Zach Allen off Covid reserve list

NFL: San Francisco 49ers at Arizona Cardinals Michael Chow-USA TODAY Sports

Good news for the Arizona Cardinals heading into their week eight matchup with the Green Bay Packers as the team announced they have activated Chandler Jones and Zach Allen off the Covid-19 reserve list.

From the team:

The Arizona Cardinals Football Club today announced that the team has activated defensive lineman Zach Allen and linebacker Chandler Jones from the Reserve/COVID-19 list.

In addition, the team has released running back Tavien Feaster from the practice squad.

This is big news for the Arizona Cardinals coming out of their two week hell of Covid-19 cases and still going 2-0.

The Packers offense is playing well and getting two of the better pass rushers and players on the defense back is big.

Also, Chandler Jones has refuted the report he lost 15 pounds while dealing with Covid-19, so maybe it was not as bad as it seemed for Jones? Obviously we are never likely to get the full story, but all that matters is Allen and Jones are back.
