Multiple members of the coaching staff, including head coach Kevin Stefanski, along with other key on-field contributors were added to the team’s COVID-19 list today, making them ineligible to participate in Sunday night’s playoff game against Pittsburgh.
Here is the official statement from the team:
We were informed this morning that Head Coach Kevin Stefanski, two additional members of the coaching staff and two players have tested positive for COVID-19.
