The Denver Broncos temporarily closed their training facility on Friday, as the team reported a positive COVID-19 diagnosis from a staff member. The Buffalo Bills are set to face the Broncos for a nationally televised game at 4:30 p.m. EST on Saturday.
Following the report, it was confirmed by Loren Landow, the team’s head strength and conditioning coach, that he is the one that tested positive.
I was surprised this morning to learn that I tested positive for COVID-19. I feel great w no symptoms following all the guidelines of our medical staff. Gonna hurt not being out there tomorrow, and I can’t wait to get back to work!!— Loren Landow (@LorenLandow) December 18, 2020
This is a situation worth monitoring, to see if there are any additional updates related to the Broncos. As noted from Patrick Smyth, the Broncos’ Chief Communications Officer, the team will participate in a virtual session as opposed to a traditional walk-thru. Considering that this game is being played on a short week, the Broncos will have to make their final preparations virtually.
While this is considered a developing situation, it is too soon to speculate if this would have any impact on Saturday’s game. Check back with Buffalo Rumblings for any updates related to the situation.
