Griffin (illness) was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Friday after testing positive for the virus, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

Griffin is now out for Sunday's game against the Patriots since he'll be unable to return two negative tests at least 24 hours apart. His absence will be a blow to the Jaguars' defense, as he's racked up 45 total tackles and six passes defended across 13 games this season. With Rudy Ford (undisclosed) also on the reserve/COVID-19 list, Tre Herndon and Nevin Lawson are candidates to see an increased role.
