This diagnosis has been known since Friday evening, when the organization received the results of its daily screening. The individual was quickly placed in quarantine and the Jaguars came into contact with everyone who knew the player.
“As a preventive measure for today [samedi], we have made the decision to keep our football activities at bay while following the protocols and recommendations of the NFL, “the” Jags “said in a statement.
Jacksonville (1-4) is scheduled to receive a visit from the Detroit Lions (1-3) on Sunday afternoon. No update regarding the holding of this meeting has yet been made.
With the New England Patriots, there are only two names left on the coronavirus absent list, those of offensive lineman James Ferentz and defensive tackle Byron Cowart.
On Saturday, the “Pats” facilities were open, ESPN reported, as the team was forced to cancel the previous day’s training due to a new case.
The Patriots and their Sunday opponents, the Denver Broncos, are therefore continuing their preparation for the game, which has not yet been postponed.
