PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Philadelphia Eagles safety Marcus Epps has tested positive for the coronavirus, according to multiple reports, as the team is in its bye week. Epps has gone into self-isolation after learning he contracted the virus.

“The Philadelphia Eagles received confirmation this morning that a player tested positive for COVID-19. The individual immediately went into self-isolation upon learning of his test result. We are following the NFL-NFLPA intensive protocols and remain in close communication with the league on this matter,” the Eagles said in a statement.

According to NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero, no other Eagles tested positive from Wednesday’s testing.

Over the summer, head coach Doug Pederson and right tackle Lane Johnson tested positive for the virus and fully recovered.
