Tomlinson (undisclosed) was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Tuesday.

The defensive tackle is unvaccinated, so depending on whether he tested positive, he may be looking at an extended absence. If positive, Tomlinson will be out at least 10 days, missing the team's Week 12 matchup with the 49ers, but if he was just a close contact, he could rejoin the Vikings in as soon as five days. If Tomlinson is unavailable for Sunday's game, Sheldon Richardson would likely pick up extra reps in his stead.
