The Falcons placed Hurst on the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday after he tested positive for the virus, Scott Bair of the team's official site reports.

Hurst is among 10 Falcons on the active roster and two more on the practice squad that have landed in COVID-19 protocols in recent days. The entire team is vaccinated, so the tight end still has a chance to test out of the protocol and make himself available for Sunday's game at Buffalo.
