Covid NFL season has just kicked off in Atlanta


Recommended Posts

It took a bit longer than expected but the first in-season player positive result for Covid has happened.

The following from PFT... With Covid positive results on the uptick throughout much of the country, there are going to be more players testing positive and missing games.

 

"The Falcons’ first-round draft pick is the first player to be placed on the league’s COVID-19 reserve list this season.

A.J. Terrell, a rookie cornerback chosen with the 16th overall pick in this year’s draft, was placed on reserve/COVID-19 today. Players can be placed on the reserve list either because they test positive for COVID-19 or because they’ve been exposed to someone who tested positive.

Although several players were placed on the reserve list during training camp, Terrell is the first case since the regular season started.

On the field, the Falcons’ secondary will miss Terrell because cornerback Kendall Sheffieldand safety Ricardo Allen have both already been ruled out this week with injuries.

The Falcons have promoted cornerbacks Tyler Hall and Delrick Abrams and linebacker Edmond Robinson to the active roster for Sunday’s game against the Bears."

It might not make one difference to this spectacular and memorable Jets season but can you imagine Russel Wilson testing positive in the by week after the NFC championship game?

Geno being unfollowed by Jamal on Instagram after he throws 3 interceptions in the SuperBowl?

Regardless of your thoughts on COVID and where we stand currently, a player testing positive puts him out of commission for a longer time than most minor injuries do.

Jaguars RB Ryquell Armstead tested positive before the season started back in the Aug 30-Sep 5 testing timeframe.  4 weeks later and there has been no word on when he might return.  

Other positive tests during that period include:  Saints RB Dwayne Washington, who came off the list for Week 2 after 18 days on the COVID list; 49ers' LB Fred Warner and Panthers G Chris Reed are returning to the field this week.

So any player who tests positive in the regular season can likely anticipate missing at least 3 games.

Not surprised its Atlanta.  Watch out now for the Florida teams given that Florida is completely opened up.  

Just wait 2 weeks and then another 2 weeks after that and that is where we’ll really see things spiking.

Oh no.  Imagine having to shut down what is sure to be one of the most memorable seasons of Jets football we've ever witnessed.

What'll happen is we'll finally be in position to pick # 1 overall, then the season will get cancelled just before it can be deemed "official" and we'll be handed the 6th pick.

I remember there were many COVID cases in the NFL a couple months ago and then it came out that the tests on players were actually negative. I wouldn't be shocked if it happens again. It's real but definitely overhyped 

200,000 people say different but this forum isn't about that
