FORT WORTH, Tx. ( – According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the New Orleans Saints have several coaches and one player who tested positive for COVID-19.

The entire Saints coaching staff was vaccinated entering the season.

The NFL sent a memo before the year, stating vaccinated players or coaches, who test positive and are asymptomatic, could return after two negative tests 24 hours apart. Non-vaccinated players would still require 10-day isolation periods.

The franchise has not released any information about who tested positive or if the positive cases include symptoms.
