Bucs TE Cameron Brate reveals he had coronavirus

  Bucs TE Cameron Brate reveals he had coronavirus Brate said he is fully recovered from COVID-19 and encouraged people to donate plasma to help fight the virus in others who contract it. View this post on Instagram A post shared by Cameron Brate (@cambamgram) on Jul 29, 2020 at 6:13am PDT What does that have to do with Brady? Last month, Brady and several Buccaneers teammates got together for workouts despite the NFLPA’s medical director, Dr. Thom Mayer, advising players against it. Brady and his teammates continued to work out together, and Brady posted a quote on Instagram that appeared to be a response to Mayer’s advice.

The Phillies were the last team to face the Miami Marlins, who have had more than half their roster test positive for the coronavirus. Philadelphia’s series against the New York Yankees had already been postponed this week as a precaution, and it’s unclear how Wednesday’s positive tests will impact the team's schedule beyond that.

Major League Baseball made some updates to its coronavirus policy this week, including requiring teams to have a coronavirus compliance officer travel with them. The MLBPA is also seeking some significant rule changes to help keep players safe.

Testing has ramped up over the past few days as Dreger notes that 1,500 tests are being conducted on a daily basis.  If that number seems high, it’s not just the players for each team who are being tested, but other team officials and executives are as well.
