Falcons cornerback A.J. Terrell’s positive COVID-19 test won’t affect the status of Sunday’s Falcons-Bears game.
The Saturday tests for every other Falcons player and coach came back negative Sunday morning, according to multiple reports, meaning the Falcons will host the Bears in Atlanta at 1 p.m. as scheduled.
Terrell, 22, was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list on Saturday after reportedly testing positive on Friday, when the first-round pick out of Clemson practiced with the team. Contact tracing was conducted to determine who came in close contact with Terrell. NFL Network reports no players were documented as being close to Terrell, who will miss Sunday’s game.
Multiple reports said Sunday morning that Terrell was the only player or coach to test positive across the NFL entering Week 3. Terrell was the NFL’s first coronavirus case since the 2020 season began.
