Michael Thomas and several Saints coaches test positive for COVID
NEW ORLEANS - Wide receiver Michael Thomas and some members of the Saints coaching staff have reportedly tested positive for the coronavirus days after their blowout victory over the Packers.
ESPN's Adam Schefter reported that eight people, including six of the team's offensive coaches, tested positive for the virus Tuesday. It's unclear whether the cases will impact the Saints' game against Carolina this weekend, but a source within the organization told ESPN they would be "just fine."
