49ers player tests positive for COVID-19

A San Francisco 49ers player who was working out with teammates in Nashville has tested positive for COVID-19, NFL Network's Mike Garafolo and NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Friday.

The entire group, which includes all of the 49ers quarterbacks and other skill players, got tested Friday and are awaiting the results, NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reported. Pelissero noted those in Nashville are grounded until further notice. Some players are trying to figure out how and when they can travel, while others will remain in Nashville, Garafolo added.

"Federal and state privacy laws prohibit our organization from commenting on the personal health of our employees," the 49ers said in a statement obtained by Rapoport.

It is the latest news of a positive test during a week in which Rapoport and Pelissero reported that multiple players on the Houston Texans and Dallas Cowboys, including star running back Ezekiel Elliott, tested positive for the novel coronavirus, and Denver Broncos defensive back Kareem Jackson told NFL Network's James Palmer that he too tested positive for the coronavirus.
