Source: Broncos OL, Vikings LB positive for virus

The Denver Broncos have postponed practice Friday after an offensive lineman tested positive for COVID-19, a source told ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Broncos coach Vic Fangio informed his team that it will conduct virtual meetings Friday, the source said. The Broncos are expected to practice Saturday ahead of Sunday’s game against the Los Angeles Chargers.

Broncos offensive line coach Mike Munchak has been in the NFL’s COVID-19 protocols this week and has not been in the team’s complex or attended practice. On Thursday, Fangio would not say whether Munchak had tested positive for COVID-19 and did not offer a timetable for his return.

Denver running backs coach Curtis Modkins tested positive for COVID-19 earlier this month and did not travel to the Broncos’ game against the New England Patriots on Oct. 18. Modkins has been back with the team this week.

A Minnesota Vikings linebacker also tested positive for COVID-19, a source said. The Vikings had coronavirus-related concerns after facing the Tennessee Titans amid the outbreak on that team but did not report a positive test at that time.

The Vikings are scheduled to face the Green Bay Packers on Sunday.
