JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — The Jacksonville Jaguars are the latest NFL team dealing with a positive COVID-19 test.

The Jaguars say a practice squad player has tested positive for the coronavirus.

The player was quarantined, and the team is reviewing contact tracing data to determine what further precautions need to be taken.

The Jaguars host Detroit on Sunday and plan to play as scheduled. Jacksonville decided to hold football activities remotely Saturday as part of NFL protocols.

The Jaguars are the fourth NFL team to deal with COVID issues in recent days, joining Atlanta, Indianapolis and New England.
