Report: Vikings player tests positive for COVID; game against Packers still scheduled
GREEN BAY/MINNEAPOLIS (CBS 58) -- The Minnesota Vikings reported Friday, Oct. 30, linebacker Todd Davis has been placed on the team's COVID-19 list and is not in isolation.
The news comes just days ahead of the Green Bay Packers vs. Minnesota Vikings game set for Sunday, Nov. 1.
Two more positive tests for two more players on two separate teams, per sources:— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) October 30, 2020
A Broncos’ offensive lineman tested positive.
A Vikings’ linebacker tested positive.
As far as we know, this is the Vikings lone case and the game is scheduled to kick off at 12 p.m.
The way the Packers have dodged positive COVID-19 cases up to this point is impressive. Their last opponent, the Houston Texans, just shut down the team facilities after players tested positive. As cases continue to soar in Wisconsin, the Packers are trying to run a tight ship.
"Obviously we can’t control much about the team that we are playing. If they have cases then we play them obviously, that’s a tough spot. But getting tested every day obviously helps a little bit with just mentally knowing that they will be on top of it as fast as possible," said Davante Adams, Packers wide receiver.
“It is our responsibility to this football team to try and do everything in our own power to be vigilant and make sure we are trying to stay as healthy as possible," said Packers Head Coach Matt LaFleur.
