Bills rookies report for first COVID-19 test


Buffalo Bills rookies reported to the team facilities in Orchard Park on Tuesday for their first COVID-19 test, the team confirmed to WGR.

According to the NFL/NFLPA agreement, players must test negative for COVID-19 on Day 1 of training camp, then have no testing for two days while they stay quarantined, then test negative again on the fourth day of camp before being allowed into team facilities for physicals or any football-related work.

That timeline would mean that rookies would not be allowed into team facilities until Friday at the earliest, and only if they test negative both times.  

Also, according to the NFLPA, 59 players have tested positive for COVID-19 so far, which includes reported cases dating back to March.
