The alarms went off on Friday in the Jets. Yesterday morning, one of his players allegedly tested positive for coronavirus, which immediately put his game at risk against the Cardinals. However, after testing all the players and coaches, the New York franchise reported that it was a false positive, as they all tested negative and will play their match tomorrow as scheduled.
The shock was such for the Jets that they had to close their facilities and cancel yesterday’s practice to avoid possible infections. However, everything turned into a false alarm. “Tonight, we received negative results of the COVID-19 PCR test for all players, coaches and staff,” the New York franchise explained in a statement.
“After a presumptive positive COVID-19 test and with great caution to ensure everyone’s health and safety, we sent all players and staff home this morning. We also initiated all mandatory NFL protocols, including player isolation, posttesting, and contact tracing, “added the Jets.
Joe Flacco, starter for the Jets
Tomorrow against the Cardinals Joe Flacco will be the starting quarterback for the Jets. Flacco will take the place of Sam Darnold, who was injured in the last game against Denver. The same New York coach, Adam Gase, confirmed that his quarterback has severe pain in his right shoulder and it would be impossible to have him ready for tomorrow’s game, to be played at MetLife Stadium.
“Has a lot of pain. That is what it is. He can lift his arm up to a point, but to go out and practice, it would be very difficult for him at this point, ”explained Adam Gase. For now, the Jets they rank last in the AL East, losing all four of their games. Arizona, 2-2, is also last in the NFC West.
