Three days before their scheduled Week 17 rematch with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the Atlanta Falcons revealed Thursday they have closed their center due to a gamer testing positive for the virus.
This isn’t the very first time the Falcons have shuttered their facility in 2020 due to COVID cases within the company. Barring an extensive break out from the single positive case, however, all indications are that the Falcons will still take a trip to Tampa to play the Buccaneers on Sunday.
Atlanta, which just played the Bucs on Dec. 20, is looking to snap a four-game losing streak to close the year. Tampa Bay, meanwhile, is looking to capture a fourth straight win as it enters the playoffs.
