Mickens, who is the primary punt and kickpff returner, will not travel to Charlotte for the team's Week 10 game at Carolina. Wideout Scotty Miller, cornerback Sean Murphy-Bunting and safety Antoine Winfield Jr. are all listed as return options for the Bucs in Mickens' absence.
Per league protocols, Mickens and Grayson will isolate for five days after being placed on the reserve/COVID list and will undergo thorough testing before being activated.
In addition to Tampa Bay's announcement, the team also downgraded guard Ali Marpet's status from questionable to out for Sunday. Marpet has been in the league concussion protocol the past two days.
