The Rams placed Atwell (undisclosed) on the reserve/COVID-19 list Monday.

Atwell's rookie training camp will get a late start because of the move, putting him behind the eight ball in terms of learning everything he needs prior to his debut season. He'll have to play catch-up with the other rookies and teammates once he's cleared from the list and also may have a tough time finding the field consistently as part of a deep wide receiver group that also includes Robert Woods, Cooper Kupp, DeSean Jackson and Van Jefferson.
