COVID-19 Tests Close Colts’ Facility

The Colts announced that they have closed their facility in the wake of positive COVID-19 tests. For now, they’ll work remotely as the tests are re-checked for accuracy.

This morning, we were informed that several individuals within our organization have tested posted for COVID-19,” the team said in a statement. “The team is currently in the process of confirming those tests. In the meantime, the practice facility will be closed and the team will work remotely while following NFL protocols. We are in communication with the NFL and will have more information when available.”

The Colts are currently slated to play the Bengals in Indy on Sunday. Rescheduling the game – as we’ve seen throughout the season – could prove to be tricky. The Colts’ bye is in Week 7; the Bengals’ bye is in Week 9.

Meanwhile, the Falcons’ latest round of testing did not yield any new positives, giving them the greenlight to resume in-person activities. With that, the game between the Falcons and the Vikings is set to go on as scheduled. Ditto for Colts-Bengals, though that could change between now and the end of the business day.

    PFR, let me know if you need an intern or something. I’m concerned about how far behind you all are compared to previous years.

        What I wear and where I live is irrelevant. But I do have legitimate concern about this site apparently having the bandwidth to only put out 6 posts in the middle of the NFL season. Especially when the story involved noted the potential ramifications of postponing a game, yet they still never updated it. They used to be way better at covering a lot more. I’m hoping they get the help they need.

            Is Timmy supposed to be an insult? Like Tim Dwight or something? I don’t really get that.
