In the ongoing carousel of positive tests this week, a player on the Jacksonville Jaguars has tested positive for COVID and the team is working remotely today. The team still plans to play the Detroit Lions tomorrow while the positive player self isolates and the team keeps on constant contact with the league.
The team will conduct and receive rapid-result testing results on Saturday. These decisions were made in consultation with the NFL and the team’s medical advisors. The health and safety of all the players, coaches and staff, as well as their families, was a huge selling point for doing things this way and the team didn’t flinch when getting things done. Here’s to hoping the game goes as planned and the right steps keep being made.
