Riley Reiff's streak of playing every snap this season is in jeopardy after the Vikings placed the starting left tackle on its reserve COVID-19 list before Wednesday's practice.
The list is for players who have either tested positive for the coronavirus or had close contact with someone who has. Reiff would be able to play Sunday's season finale in Detroit if his case is only close contact and the exposure was on Monday.
If Reiff can't play, the Vikings could start veteran Rashod Hill or get a jump on rookie Ezra Cleveland's transition from right guard to his spot as the team's left tackle of the future.
Hill has started 16 games in four seasons, including five at left tackle. He hasn't started since filling in for Reiff for one game last season. Cleveland has brought much-needed stability to right guard in his eight starts at the position.
Reiff has played all 1,002 snaps on offense this season. Included in the restructured contract he signed in August is a $2 million incentive clause for playing in at least 93.75% of the team's offensive snaps.
He should hit that mark unless he misses Sunday's game and the Vikings runs at least 69 plays. The Vikings also could choose to pay him the $2 million if he falls just short because of COVID-19 protocols.
