We now know how many NFLers have COVID-19 after the league’s first few rounds of testing. Earlier today, the NFL Players’ Association released a set of data that revealed 72 players league-wide have tested positive for COVID-19 as of July 10th, 2020. According to NFL.com, the 72 individuals make up about 2.5% of rostered players in the league.
In the announcement, the NFLPA also released a map showing the concentration of Coronavirus in NFL markets. The Miami Dolphins have the highest concentration of average daily Coronavirus cases per 100,000 people with 67.53 cases per 100K. The New England Patriots have the lowest concentration of cases with just 3.27 cases per 100,000 people.
The NFL and the NFLPA are still trying to resolve outstanding issues between the two sides before players have to report to team facilities. Rookies for the Kansas City Chiefs and the Houston Texans are scheduled to report to work this weekend. All NFL veterans are slated to report to work by July 28th.
