NFL, NFLPA Announce Zero Positive Cases Among Players

Published

on

The NFL had zero positive cases among players and just five among staff members in their last round of COVID-19 testing, the league and NFLPA announced Tuesday.

This week’s results mark a slight improvement from the last testing period, where two players and five staff tested positive.

In the period spanning from Sept. 13 – 19, the league administered 36,664 total tests to 7,845 players and staff.

14,074 tests were distributed to 2,438 players. 5,407 staff members received 22,590 coronavirus tests.

Tier 1 and 2 individuals continue to be tested daily, while Tier 3 staff across the league are being tested on a weekly basis.

As the 2020 season approaches week 3, the league’s COVID-19 protocols appear to be working perfectly with no significant virus outbreaks to date.

The Pittsburgh Steelers have not had any virus-related issues since running back Jaylen Samuels was removed from the COVID-19/ Reserve list on Aug. 13.
