The Indianapolis Colts have closed their practice facility after being informed of “several” positive COVID-19 tests within the organisation.
Still in the process of confirming the tests, the Colts did not reveal whether any of the apparent positives were from their players.
The Colts are due on Sunday to host the Cincinnati Bengals at Lucas Oil Stadium, where there have been a limited number of fans at games.
A statement from the Colts on Friday read: “This morning, we were informed that several individuals within our organisation have tested positive for COVID-19. The team is currently in the process of confirming these tests.
“In the meantime, the practice facility will be closed and the team will work remotely while following NFL protocols.
“We are in communication with the NFL and will have more information when available.”
The Colts are second in the AFC South at 3-2 following a 32-23 defeat to the Cleveland Browns last time out.
