The league also is urging teams to strongly encourage players to wear masks while they are on the sideline during games and in locker rooms.

“We’re trying to double down on (preventing) high-risk close contacts during game day,” NFL chief medical officer Dr. Allen Sills said on a conference call Tuesday.

He later added, “Our No. 1 priority is the health and safety of everyone involved. We want to be as safe as possible and that’s why we go through the detailed exercise of contact tracing. That’s why we go through the detailed exercise of identifying high-risk contacts.

NFL trade deadline: What moves should all 32 teams make?

  NFL trade deadline: What moves should all 32 teams make? The NFL trade deadline marks a final window to bring on impact players, shed salaries or stock up on picks. But what should each team do?► COVID-19: If you're looking to get a difference-maker into your building, it makes sense to pull the trigger on a deal well before Nov. 3.

Last weekend, Baltimore Ravens cornerback Marlon Humphrey took his COVID-19 test, played against the Steelers and learned the next morning that he had produced a positive result.

The Ravens had six players fall in that high-risk close contact category. As a precaution, they must isolate for five days.

Meanwhile, Green Bay Packers running back AJ Dillon also learned Monday morning that he tested positive. Packers running back Jamaal Williams and linebacker Kamal Martin were deemed high-risk close contacts and are isolating.

The Packers are scheduled to play Thursday night at the San Francisco 49ers, and NFL chief football administrative officer Dawn Aponte said the game remains on track.
