Atlanta Falcons cornerback A.J. Terrell will not play Sunday against the Bears after he tested positive for COVID-19 and was placed on the NFL's reserve/COVID-19 list. He'll be the first NFL player to miss a game due to a positive COVID-19 test this year.
So far, no other Falcons players have tested positive for the novel coronavirus. Tier 1 and Tier 2 players, coaches and staff are tested every morning, with the results being returned within 24 hours. We'll know Sunday morning if any other Falcons players or staff contracted COVID-19.
If there are additional positive cases, it'll be the first test for the NFL's protocol on allowing games to be played amid a coronavirus outbreak in a team facility.
Terrell was tested Friday morning and practiced later that day (he was not on the Falcons' injury report). The team received his positive test result Saturday.
