The NFL has shifted the Las Vegas game against Tampa Bay out of prime time after several Raiders players have been unable to practice this week because of contact tracing from the coronavirus. The game in Las Vegas was originally scheduled to be played at 5:20 p.m. PDT Sunday in the national television window on NBC but now has been moved to 1:05 p.m. PDT in a regional window on Fox. The game between the Seahawks and Cardinals in Arizona has been moved into the prime-time window.

The Las Vegas Raiders have placed four starting offensive linemen and safety Johnathan Abram on the reserve/COVID-19 list after they were determined to be close contacts with a teammate who had tested positive for the coronavirus. Two people familiar with the moves confirmed that Abram, Kolton Miller, Denzelle Good, Rodney Hudson and Gabe Jackson were all placed on the list because of high-risk contact with right tackle Trent Brown. The people spoke on condition of anonymity because the moves haven’t been announced.
