Snead will isolate during the ongoing 2021 NFL Draft and added his positive test came in between vaccination shots.

The GM said he has mild symptoms of some aches and pains, but was in overall good spirits, joking that his wife will not let him in their house and he's converting his garage into an office to work from.

Los Angeles did not have a first-round draft selection on Thursday and will make its first pick in Friday's second round at No. 57.
