Cardinals coach Kliff Kingsbury to miss game after positive COVID test

Arizona coach Kliff Kingsbury tested positive for COVID-19 and will miss the Cardinals’ Sunday road game against the Cleveland Browns, the team announced Friday night.

The Cardinals stated that quarterbacks coach Cam Turner and defensive lineman Zach Allen also tested positive and won’t be at the contest.

Defensive coordinator Vance Joseph and special teams coordinator/assistant head coach Jeff Rodgers will share the head coaching duties for the Cardinals (5-0). Joseph spent two seasons as the head coach of the Denver Broncos, going 11-21 in 2017-18.

The team said other coaches would fill duties as needed.

The positive test for Kingsbury and the two others comes in the same week that three-time Pro Bowl outside linebacker Chandler Jones tested positive. He was placed on the COVID-19 list on Tuesday and is expected to miss Sunday’s game.

Kingsbury told reporters this week that the team is fully vaccinated.
