Adam Schefter has just reported that the Chargers player to test positive for COVID-19 was offensive guard Ryan Groy.
Groy has been the team’s starter at right guard while Trai Turner has been injured and it’s likely he, too, will likely miss Sunday’s game against the Denver Broncos.

Well, the Chargers’ clean COVID test streak has officially come to an end.
According to a statement from the team on Thursday morning, the Bolts have confirmed they received a positive test result from a single player late Wednesday night. As of right now, all of the player’s close contacts have been identified and will participate in team activities remotely.
The rest of the team will go through their normal practice schedule while they will hold all meetings virtually.

This is the second-known positive test to come out of the NFL this week after the New York Giants announced they had one within the last 24 hours, as well. They have already announced that offensive guard Will Hernandez has been placed on the team’s COVID-19 list.
It didn’t take long for the Giants to make the move with Hernandez, so we should learn who the positive player is in a matter of hours. We’ll update you all as soon as the news drops.
