Rams player tests positive for coronavirus, team enters intensive protocol

Rams player tests positive for coronavirus, team enters intensive protocol

The Rams will hold their team meetings from home Wednesday after an unidentified player tested positive for the coronavirus on Tuesday night.

“This evening, we learned a Rams player tested positive for COVID-19,” the team said in a statement. “The player immediately entered self-quarantine and out of an abundance of caution, we are entering intensive protocol.”

The Rams (6-3) were scheduled only for a light walk-through practice Wednesday with an extra-long week of preparation for their game at Tampa Bay (7-3) on Monday night. Rams players and coaches will hold their normal schedule of meetings from home on Wednesday. They haven’t determined their schedule for the rest of the week.

The Rams defeated the Seattle Seahawks, 23-16, on Sunday in Inglewood, and Coach Sean McVay gave the players Monday off following the win. Tuesday is a regularly scheduled day off.

The Rams had not had a positive for COVID-19 since rookie outside linebacker Terrell Lewis at the beginning of training camp. Center Brian Allen was the first NFL player to confirm he had tested positive for coronavirus back in April. Left tackle Andrew Whitworth also recovered from the infection earlier this year.

The NFL instituted guidelines for the intensive protocol last month as a response to an outbreak with the Tennessee Titans. It calls for rapid point of care tests in addition to the daily PCR testing, virtual meetings, the use of masks by everyone on the practice field at all times, the use of gloves by all players on the practice field, and a ban on player gatherings away from the facility.
