Nate Becker: Elevated for Week 17

Becker has been elevated from the practice squad ahead of Sunday's game against Miami, the Bills' official site reports.

Nate Becker: Clears COVID protocols

Becker was restored from the practice squad COVID-19 list Monday.

Nate Becker: Assigned to COVID-19 list

Becker was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Saturday, the Bills' official site reports.

Analysis: t's important to note Becker has not necessarily tested positive for the virus, but because he's been deemed to have been in close contact with fellow tight end Dawson Knox -- who tested positive for COVID-19 -- Becker has been placed on the list due to league protocol. With Knox already ruled out for the game and tight end Lee Smith additionally placed on the list, Becker was probably looking at a callup for Sunday's game against the Jets, but the Bills will have to make due with whatever they can piece together. Right now, Tyler Kroft is the only tight end set for action against New York.
