NFLPA informs players 12 rookies tested positive for COVID-19

The NFL Players Association informed players Friday night that 12 rookies have tested positive for COVID-19, NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reported, per an informed source.

Pelissero added the results are from the nine NFL teams that have already received test results from the initial round of league-wide screening that recently took place.

Faced with the expectation that there would be players who tested positive, the NFL plans to isolate those individuals and prevent the spreading of the virus through robust testing, contact tracing and education, Pelissero reported.
