When the Seahawks beat the 49ers on Sunday afternoon, they did so without their top tight end, Gerald Everett. Everett was placed on the Reserve/COVID-19 list after testing positive last week, despite being vaccinated.
But Monday afternoon, it was reported that Everett tested negative for COVID.

If Everett, who is fully vaccinated, can test negative again on a short week, he could make his return to the field after a one game absence and suit up on Thursday night against his former team, the Los Angeles Rams.
Everett has caught eight passes for 77 yards and a touchdown so far in 2021, including five receptions for 55 yards in the Vikings loss, which was the last game he appeared in.
Everett spent four seasons in LA and shared the tight end room with Tyler Higbee. His best season came in 2020 where he set career-highs with 41 catches for 417 yards on the season, while also adding one touchdown.
