Pro Football Talk is reporting that the Jets after a player produced a “presumptive positive” test result on Friday.
The Jets have sent the players and coaches home out of an abundance of caution while the player is being re-tested.
Here’s hoping that this was a false positive because the NFL is grappling to get the Titans and Patriots situations under control after recent positive tests.
The Jets are scheduled to play the Cardinals on Sunday at 1 pm EST.
Adam Schefter mentions that the Cardinals are scheduled to leave for New York today, so now there are questions whether they can leave for Sunday’s game.
We’ll have more regarding the Jets as the news is available.
