The Denver Broncos are dealing with another COVID-19 issue ahead of Saturday’s game against the Buffalo Bills.
“Following a positive COVID-19 test result from a staff member at UCHealth Training Center, the Broncos canceled today’s walk-thru as a precaution,” the club said in a statement. “The team is continuing its normal preparations virtually for Saturday’s game against Buffalo.”
Strength and conditioning coach Loren Landow confirmed on Twitter he 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
The precautionary measures are the latest taken by a Broncos team that has dealt with multiple COVID-19 issues this season. Most notably, the entire quarterback room was ruled out in Week 12 due to a positive test and multiple high-risk close contacts.
The 5-8 Broncos are set to host the 10-3 Bills Saturday at 4:30 p.m. ET only on NFL Network.
