RoundUp

RoundUp

The Falcons reopened their facility on Friday, a day after closing it after a member of the organization had tested positive.

The Falcons have followed all protocols in the wake of Cominsky's positive test and their Week 6 matchup vs. the Vikings is on as scheduled, Pelissero adds.

Another source told ESPN's Adam Schefter there were four positive tests for the virus, but an Atlanta official said the club is "not at four confirmed". "As has been the case with other teams in this type of situation, that game is in jeopardy".

"This decision was made in consultation with the National Football League and medical officials", the Falcons said in a statement.

"One source told Schefter that there were four positive tests", the outlet reported, "but a Falcons official said the team is 'not at four confirmed.' The official also told Schefter that the Falcons are 'still working through details'". Obviously there will be further testing before anyone gets on a plane for Minnesota.
