The Arizona Cardinals are on a bye this weekend ahead of their week 9 matchup against the Miami Dolphins
Earlier on Sunday it was reported no team reported any positive COVID-19 tests among players in the league, though a couple of coaches had tested positive. Now thanks to the Arizona Cardinals, that needs to be amended.
Now no team that played in week 8 has had players test positive. It was reported by Mike Garafolo of NFL Network that two Cardinals players has positive tests come back this weekend.
The Cardinals reportedly had their facility closed for deep cleaning. At this time it is reported the Cardinals are still planning on practicing on Monday.
The team is scheduled to play the Miami Dolphins next Sunday at 2:25 at State Farm Stadium. The Dolphins defeated the Los Angeles Rams 28-17 on Sunday.
The players who tested positive were not identified and no comment has come directly from the team as of yet. After all it was a week off for the team.
There are people already speculating and want to know who the players are. Sure, we would all like to know but at this point we have to hope no others come back positive.
Any more positives would put next week’s game at home in jeopardy. This will be something to keep an eye on as the week progresses.
The Cardinals have yet to have any players test positive this season and have not had any games altered because of positives on opponents. It was inevitable however the reach of the viral disease would make it’s way to the Cardinals.
For now, let’s not speculate on who tested positive. Let’s wait for an official announcement from the team itself before we all allow our minds to go wild on us. Hopefully this will be the extent of any positive tests going forward.
