Cam Newton tests positive for Covid, OUT Sunday v Chiefs UPDATE: Game postponed

Hapless Bills Fan

Please tightly restrict conversation in this thread to football and football-relevant matters.

Two Bills Drive no longer finds it appropriate to engage in COVID-19 discussion in our main discussion areas. (This includes your opinion about the incubation/infectious period, interval before a positive test, and infection control measures the NFL should employ, and this means YOU.) We are a Buffalo Bills fan community and we exist to serve fans of the Buffalo Bills and the NFL. Please use other communities and venues to discuss heath-related topics including COVID-19. 

 

Information about COVID-19 is available from many globally respected sources including:

 

Uptodate     |  British Medical Journal Best Practice   |      COVIPENDIUM    |    Our world in Data

 

The pinned topic: COVID-19 - Facts and Information Only Topic, located on the Off the Wall subforum, is also a resource.   Should these not meet your needs, many other sources of information (of varied accuracy) exist.

 

Thank you!

Any how many Falcons players tested positive after one did last friday? 

 

 

1 positive test is an anomaly, 5 is an outbreak. The first time we knew anything was up in Ten was when we heard of 5. There's no reason to assume this is Titans and not Falcons. We'll see what happens. 

I think a lot about how much it spreads is determined by how strictly teams adhere to their protocols inside their own buildings. I'm not sure that the Patriots history with respecting the rules will work out for them in this instance. Hopefully the rest of the league is reminded how quickly this thing can spread so proper precautions are taken and the season can carry on to a victorious conclusion for the Bills. 

 

People were getting cocky and careless. The Raiders charity event is a perfect example of people letting their guard down and putting the season at risk.

Since I know from Sabrespace that @SDS disapproves of megathreads about two topics, even if the topics are very related, I have to wonder why this was combined.  There was information that I wanted that now will be difficult to find in an 18-page (as of now) thread.  Mods, please think through a little bit.  Thanks.

Apparently Robert Kraft has also tested positive. He is currently at a top secret Chinese clinic where a 20 year old female doctor is attempting to "coax the virus out of his body" whatever that means

Chiefs have positive players now

 

Chiefs practice squad quarterback Jordan Ta'amu had tested positive for COVID-19.

Who are the other players? Need at least one to make "players".

 

 

Chiefs' scout team quarterback, Ta'amu was responsible for playing the role of Newton in practice to get the Chiefs defense ready.

 

Maybe he got too ready?

Of course Raiders rebelled, especially now that they are in LV instead of Oakland 😂

The what if scenarios are getting fascinating to contemplate.  

 

Not sure if fascinating is the feeling I'm getting......more like very concerned this whole thing may unravel and completely blow up = and the NFL as a much needed-diversion ceases to exist in 2020.

...or the NFL adds a week 18.   So far, they’ve rescheduled within the 17 week schedule.  
 

If we get hit with a massive second wave and players are testing positive left and right, then sure, we’ve got problems, but for all we know... The Titans stop testing positive this weekend, we play them as scheduled Sunday, Pats/Chiefs follow the Falcons lead and isolate the player, play on Tuesday, and everyone starts to button up realizing how susceptible they are.  
 

NFL is not going to cancel when CFB is playing, and CFB has given ZERO indication that they are not going to be crowning a National Champion.  
 

 

Just a question... What happens when a team has had 3 or more games postponed ? ... Could happen

Wouldn't be surprised if they have to cancel or postpone the season when the Bills seem to be decent lol

Maybe they can hold the Super Bowl and the draft at the same time in the same city.

 

Early May would be awesome, lol

If the Cheater video crew gets infected do the Cheaters demand an immediate pause for all games in their schedule?

Yes, I believe that was in the new CBA!

That was an issue with one particular lab, as I recall 

Yes that's correct. Another poster mentioned it and I remembered. That had slipped my mind. I would assume they are not using that particular lab anymore, likely not anyway.

Meh, if anything the Patriots dog like devotion to winning will likely make them adhere to these rules. there's no competitive edge found in shirking these...

 

My Question is, would the Patriots sit on a positive test report for a day or so to make sure they didn't have to play without their QB?... Hm.

Idk why they didn’t just set up 4 bubbles with two divisions each, have those 8 teams play, take a two week bye to shuffle teams between the bubbles, play 8 more games, then enter a playoff bubble.

 

How many infections in the NBA and NHL bubbles?

 

Gonna really suck to lose out on the best season of Bills football since...ever possibly

Unfortunately, no. The NFL moved the Bears-Colts game from 1 to 4:25.

No way they make that the National game over Bills Raiders. I would hope not anyway, however nothing really surprises me at this point.

The season is going to ***** real fast. It's funny a lot of people before the season predicted about 3 games in and we'd see things go down hill. Well, 3 games in...

I didn't read all the replys, but they canceled the game because one person tested positive?
