COVID-19 positive tests reported for NFL Sunday morning

Share

A player with a positive test and symptoms can return to the facility 10 days after symptoms appeared and at least 24 hours have passed since the last fever (without the use of fever-reducing medications).

It comes after another member of the New England Patriots was confirmed as having tested positive in the latest round of testing that took place on Saturday.

The NFL announced the postponement on Twitter early Sunday. If a team needs a second game postponed, the schedule becomes more complicated.

If the team continues to produce negative results across the board, players likely will be back on the practice field Wednesday after three days off - a truncated version of a bye week, which was originally scheduled for this week. So Chiefs-Bills will be played next Monday at 2 p.m. on Fox, simulcast on NFL Network and streaming on Amazon. But Cowart's positive test which came Sunday morning led to New England vs. Denver game being postponed into week 6. That contest was initially scheduled for Sunday's slate, but pushed back a day due to factors related to Gilmore and Murray's test results.

The panel also included the announcement season two will debut on January 25, 2021 at 9pm ET/PT. Wilford brings with him Alexandra Cavill, Melanie's daughter, who is played by Rowan Blanchard.

The Broncos have not had any issues with the coronavirus.

This season, Cowart had started every New England game at defensive tackle and played 39 percent of the Patriots' defensive snaps. They returned to their facility Saturday and were allowed by the National Football League to practice Sunday with only players, coaches and trainers after a staff member tested positive.

Will the Broncos play in Week 5?

Reports suggest they will make up the game against the Patriots in Week 6.
