Vikings OL Dru Samia tests positive for COVID-19

  Vikings OL Dru Samia tests positive for COVID-19 Vikings offensive lineman Dru Samia has tested positive for COVID-19. Contact tracing is being performed, and Samia and anyone deemed a high-risk contact will not be permitted to travel with the team for tomorrow night’s game against the Bears. © Trevor Ruszkowski-USA TODAY Sports Samia, a 2019 fourth-rounder, started four games for Minnesota earlier this year before returning to a reserve role. But the Vikings just released Pat Elflein and now find themselves without their top backup at guard. Plus, there is a good chance that there will indeed be high-risk contacts given the nature of O-line/D-line play.

A report on Thursday claimed some within the Baltimore Ravens organization are “rattled” by the team’s COVID-19 outbreak, and veteran defensive lineman Calais Campbell has seemingly confirmed that.

Campbell is among the players who have been placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list by the Ravens this week. While placement on that list does not necessarily mean a player has contracted the coronavirus, Campbell implied in a tweet on Friday that he has. He responded to some reports about Baltimore’s COVID-19 situation and said players “just want to contain this outbreak.”

Pfizer to seek approval from FDA 'within days' after further analysis finds COVID-19 vaccine 95% effective

  Pfizer to seek approval from FDA 'within days' after further analysis finds COVID-19 vaccine 95% effective Pfizer and BioNTech are expected to produce up to 50 million doses globally in 2020 and up to 1.3 billion doses by the end of 2021. The news comes days after Moderna, a Cambridge, Massachusetts-based biotechnology company, announced early Monday its candidate vaccine, mRNA-1273, developed in collaboration with the U.S. government, appeared to be 94.5% effective against COVID-19.

“We just want to contain this outbreak! Speaking from experience…you don’t want to catch covid! This virus is brutal!” Campbell wrote. “I pray no one else has to go thru this. This is bigger than football.”

We now know that Campbell and star quarterback Lamar Jackson are among those who have tested positive for COVID-19. Despite that and the Ravens closing their facility for the time being, their game against the Pittsburgh Steelers is still scheduled for Sunday.

Several players have taken to Twitter to express frustration with the way the NFL is handling the COVID-19 pandemic. Steelers players ripped the NFL over the schedule changes, while Campbell seemed to indicate the Ravens are more concerned than annoyed.

  Broncos DC Ed Donatell back home recovering after COVID-related hospitalization Broncos defensive coordinator Ed Donatell required hospitalization after contracting the coronavirus, according to the team. The second-year Denver DC was hospitalized last week but discharged Sunday. Donatell, 63, has been battling COVID-19 symptoms since Oct. 31 and has missed the past three games. Donatell, who is in his third stint with the franchise, is one of a few Broncos staffers to have contracted the virus. Running backs coach Curtis Modkins did so in October, and offensive line coach Mike Munchak was in the team’s COVID protocol.
