The COVID-19 nightmare is hitting the NFL hard after the New Orleans Saints had an undisclosed player test positive for COVID-19 after arriving in Detroit for a Week 4 game against the Lions, according to Pro Football Talk.
It would later be found to be that fullback Michael Burton tested positive for COVID-19. Burton traveled with the team on the plan from New Orleans was sitting close to four players including running back Alvin Kamara.
This is the fourth NFL team to produce positive test results this week following the Tennessee Titans, Kansas City Chiefs and New England Patriots.
The fact that the Saints are on the road tomorrow and that the test came so soon before the game could lead the NFL to postpone the contest.
If Burton receives a second positive test, New Orleans’ game against Detroit would almost certainly be postponed.
