Eagles coach Sirianni tests positive for COVID

Philadelphia Eagles coach Nick Sirianni tested positive for COVID-19 and has entered the NFL’s protocols for the virus.

The team said in a statement that Sirianni, who coached his team to a 27-17 victory over the Washington Football Team on Tuesday night, tested positive on Wednesday after feeling symptoms.

Sirianni, in his first season as the Eagles’ head coach, will work remotely and is hopeful he can return by Sunday, when Philadelphia host the New York Giants.

He is the fourth NFL head coach to test positive for the coronavirus, joining the New York Jets’ Robert Saleh, Cleveland Browns’ Kevin Stefanski and the New Orleans Saints’ Sean Payton (twice).
