Two Tampa Bay Buccaneers players have tested positive for COVID-19, per Adam Schefter. Just days before, a coach on the Bucs tested positive for the virus and two more have been in quarantine.
At least two Buccaneers’ players now have tested positive for COVID-19, per sources. Earlier this week one Buccaneers’ coach tested positive and two other assistants were quarantined. So add Tampa to the growing list of teams and schools with positive COVID-19 tests.

The cases seem to be unrelated according to Greg Auman, players and coaches have yet to meet in person. With cases of COVID-19 spiking in Florida, other sports leagues are feeling the effects of the virus.
Here’s the official statement from the Buccaneers,
Bucs coaches and players aren’t interacting in person yet, so these should be unrelated positive tests reported for the assistant coach and two players now in the last three days.
