The Houston Texans had a brief COVID-19 scare ahead of their matchup with the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday.
The Texans, league sources told Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle, had a “batch” of false positive coronavirus tests for multiple players before the game — something that could have sidelined part or all of the team and postponed the game.
However additional tests, per the report, all came back negative. The game went off without a hitch at Heinz Field, where the Steelers won 28-21 to hand Houston its third straight loss.
It’s not clear how many players and staff had initially tested positive before the game.
