Indianapolis Colts Have Several Positive COVID-19 Tests

The NFL season continues on, and the Covid cases are starting to pile up. The Colts closed their practice facility Friday after several members of their organization tested positive for COVID-19, the team said.

The team didn’t provide a specific number of people who tested positive.

The Colts are in the process of confirming the test results and will work remotely.

Indianapolis is scheduled to have a home game Sunday against the Cincinnati Bengals (1 p.m. ET).


The Atlanta Falcons closed their facility Thursday following a second positive test for COVID-19, the Tennessee Titans played Tuesday following a 16-day layoff because of an outbreak, and the New England Patriots have twice had their original Week 5 matchup against Denver postponed following four positive coronavirus tests by players. They’re set to play Sunday.


Colts owner Jim Irsay says that the team’s positive test results this morning were false positives

The Colts closed their practice facility this morning in wake of the news. However, they’ll likely be cleared to rejoin the facility on Saturday. The Week 6 matchup between the Colts and Bengals should be played as scheduled.
