Packers go to virtual meetings after positive coronavirus test


Another Wisconsin football team is dealing with the impacts from the nation-wide pandemic.

NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports that running back A.J. Dillon has tested positive for coronavirus, prompting the Green Bay Packers to go virtual in their meetings this week ahead of Thursday Night's match-up with the San Francisco 49ers.

According to Pelissero, the positive test came in before the Packers took on the Vikings Sunday afternoon. Dillon played 17 snaps against the Vikings, rushing for 21 yards on five carries.

Pelissero also reported that Baltimore Ravens cornerback Marlon Humphrey tested positive as well, and that Humphrey played all 53 defensive snaps in Sunday's game against Pittsburgh.

Green Bay is scheduled to play Thursday Night Football against San Francisco, coming after Sunday's 28-22 loss to Minnesota. In the running back position group, the Packers are already without Aaron Jones, who has missed two games with injury.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Dillon is out for Thursday's game against the 49ers.
