Nov. 18 (UPI) — A Los Angeles Rams player has tested positive for COVID-19 and his teammates now will meet virtually ahead of their Week 11 Monday Night Football game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the team said.
The Rams announced the positive test result late Tuesday. Los Angeles had previously not announced any positive tests for players since the season began.
“The player immediately entered self-quarantine and out of an abundance of caution, we are entering intensive protocol,” the Rams said. “Other than select players with assigned rehab, all football activities will take place remotely on Wednesday.
“Players and coaches will conduct their normal meeting schedule from home. This decision was made in consultation with the NFL and medical officials as the health and safety of the team is our highest priority.”
Rookie linebacker Terrell Lewis was the last Rams player to test positive, but that result surfaced during training camp. Rams center Brian Allen and tackle Andrew Whitworth also tested
