The New York Jets sent players and coaches home and closed their practice facility on Friday after a presumptive positive COVID-19 test, multiple outlets reported.

The person with the presumptive positive is believed to be a player. He is being tested again to verify the result.

The Jets are scheduled to host the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday. The Cardinals were preparing to head east on Friday but are awaiting further news before departing.

The winless Jets are planning to start Joe Flacco at quarterback with Sam Darnold injured. Darnold suffered a shoulder injury in the team’s Week 4 loss to the Denver Broncos.
