We'll keep an eye on the situation and let you know what decision the team and the League makes.

The Atlanta Falcons and Indianapolis Colts were the two latest National Football League teams to close their facilities this week due to positive coronavirus tests, but fortunately both teams have already returned to business as usual.

The Tennessee Titans, seemingly the Colts' main AFC South rivals this season, were forced to close their facility for almost two weeks and had two games rescheduled due to a coronavirus outbreak of over 20 players and personnel.

The Colts had four positive tests that came up negative upon retesting.

The Colts closed their facility Friday morning after four positive Covid-19 tests were returned but reopened in the afternoon following negative tests. The NFL already has been forced to reschedule 12 games caused by postponements and delays due to positive tests of the novel coronavirus among team personnel. Practice squad player Bill Murray also returned from the COVID-19 list Thursday.

The Colts wrote on Twitter that the team will work remotely. As of now, the Falcons recreation towards the Vikings is on as scheduled for Sunday.

Atlanta resumed in-person work under more stringent safety measures. The Falcons play at Minnesota on Sunday.

Rookie defensive tackle Marlon Davidson has been set on the COVID-19/book list Tuesday and also the next individual, who's not a participant, then tested positive.

The Panthers have guard/center Tyler Larsen on the reserve/COVID-19 list, five days after he played against Atlanta.
