ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting on Thursday morning that four Atlanta Falcons personnel have tested positive for the coronavirus.

The 0-5 Falcons, who fired their head coach Dan Quinn after last Sunday's loss to the Carolina Panthers, have closed their practice buildings.  And it is unclear as to whether their game against the 1-4 Minnesota Vikings this Sunday will be played.

Atlanta joins a number of other NFL teams affected by the coronavirus.  The Tennessee Titans and New England Patriots have seen their regular season changed because of positive COVID-19 tests.

This comes one day after University of Alabama head coach Nick Saban tested positive for the coronavirus.  Saban likely won't coach the Crimson Tide in their game this Saturday against Georgia.
