Packers meeting virtually after A.J. Dillon tests positive for COVID-19

The Packers are conducting meetings virtually Monday after a player, reportedly A.J. Dillon, tested positive for COVID-19.

The report that Dillon is the positive player initially came from NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero, who cited a “source informed of the situation.” The Packers later announced Dillon was placed on the COVID-19/Reserve list.

The Packers released an official statement Monday morning, which read, “The Packers were informed today that a player has tested positive for COVID-19. Our organization has entered the NFL’s intensive protocol and the player has self-quarantined. We will continue to work with the league on contact tracing as we follow the guidelines of intensive protocol. All player meetings will be conducted virtually today.

 “Our focus continues to be on the health and safety of our players, staff and community. We will continue to work closely with the NFL and medical professionals and follow their guidance.”

Pelissero reports that Dillon’s positive test came from Sunday’s pregame testing.

Dillon ran five times for 21 yards in Sunday’s loss to the Vikings.
