NFL Announces Seven Positives in Last Round of Testing

Published

on

The NFL and NFLPA continue to release encouraging COVID-19 testing data, and Wednesday was no different.

In a press release Wednesday, the parties announced just two positive tests among players and five from other staff members from their last round of testing.

Spanning from Sept. 6 to 12, the league reported just two positive tests among all players, five among staff members.

40,479 total tests were administered to 7,437 players and staff across the league.

While the NBA and NHL have had no issues in the restart of their seasons over the last few months, the NFL is proving that professional sports leagues can operate successfully and suppress COVID-19 outbreaks. With the opening weekend already in the books and an extremely low positivity rate, optimism has to be high that the league can continue rolling through the 2020 season.

The Pittsburgh Steelers have had no COVID-19 issues since running back Jaylen Samuels was removed from the Reserve list a month ago on Aug. 13.
