Marlon Humphrey tests positive for COVID-19 after playing in Ravens’ loss

Ravens cornerback Marlon Humphrey revealed Monday that he has tested positive for the coronavirus, one day after playing in Baltimore’s loss to Pittsburgh.

“I got the Rona hopefully I’ll be back healthy soon,” Humphrey tweeted Monday morning. Humphrey also retweeted a GIF posted by teammate Patrick Ricard depicting the character Sheldon Cooper from “The Big Bang Theory” spraying disinfectant around his apartment.

Humphrey, who sat out a practice last Wednesday with what the team described as an “illness,” is one of the league’s top cornerbacks. He wasn’t the only NFL player who dressed Sunday to test positive.

Green Bay rookie running back AJ Dillon also reportedly tested positive after playing 17 snaps (10 on offense, seven on special teams) in the Packers’ loss to Minnesota, NFL Network reported. Due to the league’s COVID-19 protocols, Dillon will miss Thursday’s game against San Francisco. Those two positives were the only ones to come out of testing, NFL Network reported.

The NFL sent a memo to teams last week recommending “clubs enhance their efforts to ensure physical distancing on the sidelines during games.” Players not in the game were asked to wear masks on the sidelines, although that recommendation didn’t appear to be closely followed across the league.
