The Indianapolis Colts have announced a member of the team’s staff has tested positive for COVID-19. The team says it’s in the process of conducting contact tracing and has entered the NFL’s intensive protocol.
The team says the person has self-quarantined and is under care of team doctors. The Colts will conduct the day’s scheduled practice at the Indiana Farm Bureau Center, but all team meetings will be virtually held away from the practice facility. The team says it is working with the NFL, medical staff and team doctors.
The Colts are scheduled to play the Baltimore Ravens at Lucas Oil Stadium on Sunday, however the Ravens are also in the league’s intensive protocol after placing seven defensive team members on the reserve/COVID-19 list on Wednesday.
The NFL reports the Ravens placed the players on the list after Marlon Humphrey’s positive test, which led them to add players Matt Judon, Tyus Bowser, Patrick Queen, L.J. Fort, Malik Harrison, Terrell Bonds and DeShon Elliott, according to the Ravens’ transaction page.
Several other teams have placed players on the reserve/COVID-19 list this week, including the Detroit Lions and quarterback Matthew Stafford, 49ers running back AJ Dillon, and others, calling into question if some games will be played this week.
