Andrew Beck will be forced to miss some of training camp, but it should not serve as an issue in the long run.
With the Denver Broncos no longer employing a true fullback on their roster, Andrew Beck could see a bigger role in the offense. I do not see him running the football, but definitely could help in goal line situations. As training camp gets underway, Beck will have to spend some time away from the team.
Reports have revealed that Andrew Beck was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list on Thursday. This marks the first time during training camp that a Denver Broncos player has been placed on the list.
Now, just because Beck has been placed on the list does not necessarily mean that he tested positive. There is a chance that he came into contact with a person who recently had the virus. Either way, Beck will be sidelined for at least five days if he was asymptomatic or ten if he did contract the virus himself.
Despite being placed on the list, I do not see him missing a step in preparation for the upcoming season. He played in all the games last year and served mostly as a tight end, but did see action as a fullback.
During the first few days of training camp, there is no helmets or pads. So, it is very likely that Andrew Beck will not miss a lot of important information or practices going into the full practices.
Beck is currently battling for a spot on the roster. His versatility as a hybrid fullback along with tight end should help him make the final roster.
Here is hoping that Andrew Beck is able to recover and get back on the field soon. Either way, I firmly believe that there will be no set back for him as he quarantines for a few days.
