Packers given testing scare

The Green Bay Packers were among the several teams Sunday affected by a rash of false-positive COVID-19 tests before their Sunday practice.


The Chicago Bears, Cleveland Browns, New York Jets, and Pittsburgh Steelers were among the other teams affected by the over 70 tests that came back positive over the weekend, only to learn that they were false. While other teams held out the players impacted by the results, local media outlets reported that the Packers were able to sort out the issues so no one was forced to miss practice on Sunday. 


As for the practice itself, there was some live tackling thrown into the mix since players will not have any preseason games leading up to their scheduled opener against the Minnesota Vikings on September 13th.
