With Arizona Cardinals on deck, New York Jets receive negative test results for players and coaches


After a morning fear of COVID-19, the New York Jets announced Friday night that they had received negative test results for every player, coach and staff member.That means their Sunday home game against the Arizona Cardinals will start as scheduled. The Jets’ announcement came about an hour after the Phoenix Cardinals team left the flight en route to New Jersey.

A positive player test in the morning prompted the Jets to retest the player, and it turned out to be a false positive.

The Jets shut down their facilities in the morning and held meetings practically as they made their final preparations for the game.

“We also launched all of the NFL mandated protocols, including player isolation, subsequent testing and contact tracing,” the team said in a statement. “As we have done thus far, we will continue to follow required health and safety protocols in the best interest of our coaches, players, staff and community. We look forward to our Sunday game against the Arizona Cardinals. ”

This is the second time the Jets have been affected by false positives. On August 23, in the middle of training camp, they temporarily halted their activities after receiving a word of 10 positive tests – all of which came back negative. These tests came from the same New Jersey lab that processed the last samples.
