Jaguars practice squad player tests positive for coronavirus

Jaguars practice squad player tests positive for coronavirus”

Too, This Friday, the Colts closed their facilities after receiving four positive tests for COVID-19 Within the team, however, hours later they announced that subsequent tests on those samples had returned negative and the team returned to training in the afternoon.

The Colts, who are scheduled to play the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday, added they are "in the process of confirming those tests". That list is utilized for players who test positive for the coronavirus and those found through contact tracing to have been exposed to the virus.

The Jaguars (1-4) remain set to host Detroit (1-3) on Sunday. It could benefit the team that it typically separates practice-squad players from those on the 53-man roster, creating an extra level of protection to help prevent an outbreak. Ferentz has been placed on reserve/COVID-19 list.

So look, the larger story here is that every time we see one of these tweets from National Football League reporters saying another player has tested positive or another team has a positive case and they have to shut down their facility, everyone says, oh my god, you know, this season is in big trouble.

That is obviously good news, though it is a reminder of how false positive tests can cause complications. Newton tested positive for the coronavirus, according to a person familiar with the result, and missed an October 5 game at Kansas City. The game is scheduled for Sunday in Foxborough, Mass., but now could be in jeopardy.

Gilmore, the reigning Defensive Player of the Year, and Newton returned to practice this week for the first time since testing positive for the virus.

The Patriots haven't played since October 5, when they lost at Kansas City. He was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list on Wednesday.

Defensive tackle Byron Cowart was the only Patriots player still on the list after testing positive on October 11. That game had to be rescheduled from Week 5 after the Patriots had defensive tackle Byron Cowart infected as COVID-19, a positive that was discovered two days before the game.

The Broncos haven't played since October 1.

The Broncos' layoff is the longest in the league since 2001, when the NFL postponed all games the weekend following the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Three teams - the Saints, Steelers and Buccaneers - had byes when play resumed a week later, so they all had 20 days between games that year.

Of those three teams, only the Steelers won in their return to action.

The Browns, who played the Colts on Sunday, had zero positive tests Friday and their their building was open.

Atlanta resumed in-person work under more stringent safety measures.

The Tennessee Titans, seemingly the Colts' main AFC South rivals this season, were forced to close their facility for almost two weeks and had two games rescheduled due to a coronavirus outbreak of over 20 players and personnel.

The Falcons play Sunday at Minnesota.
