COVID-19 is ravaging the Dallas Cowboys this week. On Monday, news broke that head coach Mike McCarthy tested positive for the virus. Now Dallas is experiencing even more COVID-related fallout.

Per ESPN’s Todd Archer, a number of Cowboys players and coaches are in the league’s COVID protocols.

According to Archer, “Terence Steele, Mike McCarthy, Joe Philbin, Jeff Blasko, Scott Tolzein, Harold Nash, Kendall Smith, [and] Cedric Smith,” reportedly tested positive.

“Only Cedric Smith, assistant strength and conditioning coach, could be back by Thursday,” Archer reported.

This is obviously not the news a Dallas Cowboys team that’s lost two games in as many weeks wanted. Last season, Dallas was able to avoid COVID mishaps for the most part. But this year is another story.

On the player side: Zack Martin, Keanu Neal, Amari Cooper, Randy Gregory, Greg Zuerlein, Brandon Knight, and

Aaron Rodgers remains a member of the Green Bay Packers, though for how much longer will that be the case?

The superstar quarterback apparently plans on playing somewhere in 2021. According to multiple reports, Rodgers could have opted out of the 2021 season and held onto most of his money. Instead, Rodgers has reportedly let the opt-out deadline come and go.

Sports Illustrated’s Bill Huber reported on Friday that Rodgers did not opt-out.

Aaron Rodgers could have opted out of the 2021 NFL season over fears of COVID-19 as a way to not return to the Green Bay Packers but also not pay through the nose via the fines and the returning of signing bonus.

Rodgers did not jump through that loophole.

According to a source, Rodgers did not opt out by Friday’s deadline.

Drew Brees has yet to announce an official decision on his NFL future, but it doesn’t sound like he’ll be back for another season.

ESPN NFL insider Jeremy Fowler appeared on SportsCenter on Saturday morning and shared some telling details on the situation with the Saints quarterback.

Basically, it comes down to this: Brees has yet to announce an official decision, and even those close to him aren’t 100 percent sure of his mindset, but the New Orleans Saints appear to have moved on.

Drew Brees wants to win another super bowl so nothing can be off the table. But he’s reworked that deal to be owned $1 million in base salary. That suggested Brees and the Saints have
