It’s the first good news the Jets have had this season: The team received the all clear Friday night.

Earlier in the day, the Jets received a positive test result for a player. The “presumptive positive” player was re-tested, and it was determined to be a false positive.

“This evening, we received negative PCR COVID-19 test results for all players, coaches and personnel,” the Jets said in a statement. “Following a presumptive positive COVID-19 test and out of abundance of caution to ensure everyone’s health and safety, we sent all players and personnel home this morning. We also initiated all NFL mandated protocols including player isolation, subsequent testing, and contact tracing. As we have thus far, we will continue to follow required health and safety protocols in the best interests of our coaches, players, staff and community. We look forward to our game this Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals.”

The Jets’ game against the Cardinals is on as scheduled for Sunday, and the team can return to their facility Saturday.

    WHat happened to the presumptive positive from this morning? Fake news?

    Faker than a Brett Favre retirement announcement!

  2. Now THAT is what I’m talking about. TEST them all. Get everyone accountable. This is the only way we can carry on.

    Please keep testing.

  3. Yeah, it’s nice that we can trust the COVID testing. All those numbers out there are 100% accurate. This is awesome. Let’s shut down football and the country because of this flu.

    Did you read the article? Can you read at all?

  5. Yay! Joe Flacco gets the start and he will throw to Breshad Perriman (a Ravens wash out) or hand off to Frank Gore who is well past his prime. Is this a 2016 flashback? J.E.T.S. Jets Jets Jets

  6. Still don’t understand why they sent everyone home due to someone testing “presumptive positive”. Does this mean that they were allowed in the facility before the results were known or were they allowed in the facility with a result that was not negative?

    I’m sorry that this pandemic is inconvenient for you.

  8. At least this means they can continue uninterrupted on the their quest to win the title by going 0-16 and getting the 1st pick in the draft.
