    The NFL's medical director says all procedures followed before the Baltimore Ravens' game Tuesday night when receiver Dez Bryant tested positive for COVID-19 were done properly and in the same manner as for every case. Bryant had an inconclusive test result after he was active for the game. He was removed from the field during warmups and tested again. The league and the Ravens then conducted contact tracing, but found no close contacts that would have caused an interruption in playing the game against Dallas, nor the removal of other players or team personnel. “I made the final determination that there were no high-risk close contacts to the case, so there was no need to remove anyone else,” Dr. Allen Sills said Wednesday.

    The Pac-12 season has been a series of cautionary tales, but the latest installment caused us to do a triple take here at Hotline HQ. Last week, USC announced four positive COVID-19 cases, which was both surprising and expected. Expected, because Los Angeles is experiencing 5,000 new cases per day, and USC is an urban campus in the middle of the inferno. Surprising, because the Trojans — and UCLA — have done remarkably well navigating the pandemic and keeping their players safe. The Trojans conduct eight tests per week (six antigen, two PCR) and are as transparent as program in the conference with regard to sharing relevant results. The first of several news releases last week issued by the athletic department — all leading to a canceled game against Colorado — provided details on USC’s first positive of the season and gave the Hotline plenty to ponder: “We were informed...

    THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. (AP) — Sean McVay was driving home from work Tuesday night when he got a phone call from Reggie Scott, the Los Angeles Rams’ director of sports medicine. “I had a funny intuition that this was our first positive COVID,” McVay said. Indeed, an unidentified Rams player had tested positive Monday, the team’s first positive test since the season began. The team largely shut down its training complex Wednesday and conducted business remotely, and three practice squad players were isolated. The Rams (6-3) were back at work Thursday preparing for their trip to Tampa Bay (7-3), but they did it under the heightened protocols now required for the entire league. Social distancing and protective gear are doubly emphasized, and in-person contact is minimized. And that’s what made McVay boil over with frustration Thursday at the state of the world and its ineffectiveness in handling the coronavirus pandemic....

    NEW YORK (AP/KDKA) — The NFL is placing all teams in intensive protocol starting Saturday to mitigate the risk of COVID-19 as the number of cases rises around the country. Use of masks will be mandatory at all times at team facilities, including during practice and in weight rooms. Meetings must be held either virtually or in the largest indoor space with approval by the league. Meals have to be made available for grab-and-go to avoid players and staff congregating in cafeterias. Time spent in the locker room also has to be limited. The Pittsburgh Steelers have had one staff member and one player test positive for the virus in recent weeks. Others, including Ben Roethlisberger, were placed in quarantine last week as a safety precaution after close contact with the positive player. However, all were cleared for last weekend’s game.

    The New York Giants, Atlanta Falcons and Las Vegas Raiders put players on the NFL’s COVID-19 list Tuesday, while Washington had its first instance of someone in the organization testing positive for the coronavirus since the season began. The NFL said there were 17 new confirmed positives among players and 35 among other personnel during testing from Nov. 8-14.
