The two are the most powerful individuals in the organization, so this is quite notable. Both will remain away from the team facility until they are cleared.
Denver has also had a couple of other coaches test positive for the virus and need to quarantine in recent weeks.
Elway, 60, spent his entire career with the Broncos as their quarterback and won two Super Bowl Championships before retiring on top. He later returned to the team in 2011 as their director of player personnel and was promoted to executive VP of football operations/GM just a year later.
In his nine years with the team, Elway has led the Broncos to a record of 85-59 (59 percent), which includes five playoff appearances, two trips to the Super Bowl and a title in 2015.
We wish both Elway and Ellis a speedy recovery.
