MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — The Minnesota Vikings have reportedly had a player test positive for COVID-19.
On Friday, ESPN’s Adam Schefter says his sources tell him that there were two positive tests for two separate NFL teams: a Vikings’ linebacker and a Denver Broncos’ offensive lineman.
Broncos’ HC Vic Fangio informed his team this morning that, even though it has been cleared to practice today, he is postponing practice and will do virtual meetings instead. Team expected to practice Saturday. https://t.co/A9qEulfJIy

“This reserve list category was created for a player who either tests positive for COVID-19 or who has been quarantined after having been in close contact with an infected person or persons,” the team said. “Clubs may not disclose whether player is in quarantine or is positive for COVID-19.”
On Wednesday, the team also placed cornerback Cameron Dantzler on reserve/COVID-19 list.
