NFL player with fever being kept off field ‘out of caution’

An unidentified NFL player is being withheld from one of today’s games “out of caution” after coming down with fever, according to the Washington Post.

The player, whose identity is not currently known, tested negative for COVID-19 Saturday but now has a fever and will not compete Sunday for precautionary reasons. The report says another source claims the player “woke up ill” Sunday morning.

The Washington Post reported that all NFL players and coaches tested negative for the coronavirus Saturday.

The unnamed player’s close contacts are all getting point of care tests, per ESPN.

After a week of games, the NFL reported no positive coronavirus cases within the league. The same can’t be said for the select fans who attended football games this past week, particularly the fan who attended the Kansas City Chiefs’ game at Arrowhead Stadium on Sept. 10 and tested positive for COVID-19. With advanced contact tracing protocols, however, the Kansas City Health Department was able to direct 10 people who came in contact with the fan to quarantine.
