Broncos cancel practice after five more positive COVID-19 tests

The Denver Broncos canceled practice Thursday amid a new batch of players testing positive for COVID-19.

Coach Vic Fangio said the team had five positive tests, but he didn’t name the players because of the possibility of false positives The news came after four players, including starting receiver Tim Patrick, tested positive Wednesday.

Fangio said virtual meetings were set for Thursday afternoon.

The team could hold practice on Friday and Saturday in advance of their game Sunday at the Los Angeles Chargers.

Before Thursday’s tests, the Broncos (7-8) had reported 23 positive tests since Oct. 24.

Nose tackle Mike Purcell and center Lloyd Cushenberry III have been activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list and are expected to play Sunday.

The game against the Chargers (8-7) has playoff implications, but Los Angeles has a far better chance of earning a wild-card berth. While not officially eliminated, the Broncos have less than a 1 percent chance of advancing, The New York Times reported.
