The Jets have sent all players and staff home after a player yet to be named tested positive.

The Jets are one of the many teams with players or staff testing positive.

The Titans were the first team to have a significant outbreak. Since then, other teams have come back with positive tests as well.

For the Jets, it isn’t as big of a deal as they only have one player testing positive, but they also conduct these tests a day or two before, so who knows who he passed it onto in practice.

After the Titans outbreak, the NFL set new procedures around how teams deal with COVID-19. It addresses things like who wears a mask and when to wear masks.

At the start of the season, the league looked good in testing, safety protocols, and COVID-19 results. Now, COVID-19 has caught up to the league and spread within.

According to Mike Garafolo, the Jets will prepare for the Cardinals game virtually.

Hopefully, the Jets undergo COVID testing, and no players come back positive so that they can play their game against the Cardinals on Sunday.
