The Los Angeles Rams are following an “intensive protocol” after one of the team’s players tested positive for coronavirus.

All operations will take place away from the Rams’ training facility on Wednesday except for those going through pre-arranged rehabilitation programmes.

The unnamed player is now isolating away from the rest of the roster.

“This evening, we learned a Rams player tested positive for COVID-19,” a statement read.

“The player immediately entered self-quarantine and out of an abundance of caution, we are entering intensive protocol. 

“Other than select players with assigned rehab, all football activities will take place remotely on Wednesday. Players and coaches will conduct their normal meeting schedule from home. 

“This decision was made in consultation with the NFL and medical officials as the health and safety of the team is our highest priority.”

The 6-3 Rams are scheduled to face off against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (7-3) on Monday.
