Only one NFL player produced a confirmed positive coronavirus test during the league’s most recent testing period, another encouraging report as the league prepares this week to open its 2020 regular season.
According to data released yesterday, the league tested 2,641 players and 5,708 other personnel between Aug. 30 and Sept. 5.
In addition to the one player, seven other staff members also produced a positive result.
The NFL has tested an average of 8,554 people over three testing periods, including those who have since been released or waived during the roster cut-down process.
