The Las Vegas Raiders had a player test positive for the coronavirus on Tuesday, with results returned Wednesday morning. That means they were likely infected prior to the game against the Buffalo Bills this past Sunday.
As of now, the player’s name has not been released.
Yesterday, the Raiders added defensive tackle Maurice Hurst to the team’s Reserve/COVID-19 list but there has not been confirmation he tested positive. Players can be put on the COVID-19 list if they are in close contact with someone who has tested positive even if the player has not himself tested positive.
