Broncos RBs coach tests positive, not with team

Denver Broncos running backs coach Curtis Modkins tested positive for COVID-19 and did not travel with the team to New England for Sunday’s game against the Patriots.

“Curtis is currently at home in self-isolation and experiencing no symptoms,” the team said in a statement issued Saturday. “We have evaluated close contacts, administered necessary point of care testing (no positive COVID-19 results) and implemented additional health and safety measures at UCHealth Training Center per NFL-NFLPA protocols.”

Modkins, 49, is in his third season as an assistant coach with the Broncos.

He has worked in the NFL since 2008, including stints as an offensive coordinator with the Buffalo Bills (2010-12) and San Francisco 49ers (2016). Modkins also spent time with the Kansas City Chiefs, Arizona Cardinals, Detroit Lions and Chicago Bears.

A Texas native, Modkins played running back at TCU. The two-time All-Southwest Conference selection rushed for 2,763 yards and 14 touchdowns from 1989-92.
