4 positives on a Thursday? I just don't see how that's possible.

I'm not sure how the new 5 day policy works, but I think if everyone tests negative going forward they'd be able to play another Tuesday game. I'm not really sure how it would work in theory. I'm skeptical these will be the only positives though so I'm pretty sure the game will be postponed. I guess this is now Atlanta's bye week.

 

Eta and Minnesota's bye week as well.

If true, how do you go from 4 positives to this? With this level of reporting I might have found myself a new career...

Guys, it's been explained in detail.

There was 1 positive test, that positive was confirmed, and the player moved to COVID-IR. Per league protocols, they were all given POC tests when they arrived this morning. 3 of those tests came back positive, however those immediate tests are known to be much less reliable. It's the same thing that happened to the Jets and Saints last week, and both ended up being false positives.

So now Atlanta has shut down their facilities while they run tests to determine the validity of those 3 new POC positives.

We all need to relax until more information comes out. This is all following protocol.

But if it’s just 1 case why did they shutdown the facilities?

That's what teams SHOULD be doing. Have the place scrubbed down and disinfect every corner.

Could be nothing, but...

  • Odell Beckham was sent home with an illness Thursday and the team is awaiting the results of his COVID-19 test. 

    Browns head coach Kevin Stefanski said Beckham has not yet tested positive for the virus. He was tested again Thursday and the results should be available tomorrow. Stefanski said the team would be cautious with Beckham as part of their commitment to follow the league's COVID-19 policies down to the letter.

This is getting ridiculous. With injuries and byes, I'm royally screwed if this game is canceled. I'll be down to McKinnon and Dobbins for my RB's SMH

Too soon to tell. Could get pushed to Tuesday. Hopefully there are no more positive tests.
