The NFL and NFLPA are reviewing the Las Vegas Raiders’ recent COVID-19 issues.
NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero reported Thursday that the league and players association are looking into the positive test for right tackle Trent Brown, who they believe hadn’t been consistently wearing his tracking device. The review also includes video of offensive linemen hanging out together without masks, per sources informed of the situation.
It’s standard procedure for the NFL and NFLPA to review any situation with multiple positives, Pelissero added.
Rookie cornerback Damon Arnette went on Reserve/COVID-19 on Monday. Brown was placed on the list Wednesday. Pelissero reported Brown currently is asymptomatic.
The entire Raiders starting offensive line was sent home Wednesday and is isolating after contact tracing connected them to Brown. Safety Johnathan Abram is also currently isolated.
Last month, Raiders coach Jon Gruden was fined $100,000 for failure to follow proper face-covering protocol during games.
Earlier in October, several Vegas players were fined after attending a charity event where pictures and videos were taken showing them without masks.
