Packers AJ Dillon Tests Positive For COVID-19

Packers rookie running back AJ Dillon has tested positive for coronavirus and has been placed on the team’s reserve/COVID-19 list. Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports that Dillon was tested before Sunday’s game but those results are usually not available until later Sunday or Monday.  Dillon played 17 snaps in Sunday’s loss to the Vikings.  Green Bay postponed Matt LeFleur’s 1pm press conference and cancelled player availability today.   The Packers are scheduled to head to San Francisco for Thursday Night Football.  So far the NFL has not made any statement on the status of that game.

The Green Bay Packers released the following statement this morning…

“The Packers were informed today that a player has tested positive for COVID-19. Our organization has entered the NFL’s intensive protocol and the player has self-quarantined. We will continue to work with the league on contact tracing as we follow the guidelines of intensive protocol. All player meetings will be conducted virtually today. Our focus continues to be on the health and safety of our players, staff and community. We will continue to work closely with the NFL and medical professionals and follow their guidance.”
