Raiders, Saints have no new positive cases from Friday's round of COVID-19 testing

The Las Vegas Raiders and New Orleans Saints have no new positive cases from Friday's round of COVID-19 testing, NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports, per source.

The news comes after both clubs had players test positive for COVID-19 this week, with Saints wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders and Raiders right tackle Trent Brown being the two cases. Their positive tests prompted COVID protocols within the clubs and resulted in both teams placing close contact players on the reserve/COVID list. Both Sanders and Brown have been ruled out for Week 7.

NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reports that all four Raiders offensive lineman deemed close contacts to Brown -- Denzelle Good, Rodney Hudson, Gabe Jackson and Kolton Miller -- have been cleared to play this Sunday pending the results from Saturday's COVID testing.

Saturday's news and Sunday's impending results maintain that Week 7 will be played as scheduled. With both teams coming off a bye week, the Saints host the Carolina Panthers on Sunday while the Raiders host the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
