Philidelphia Eagles head coach Doug Pederson tests positive for COVID-19

Doug Pederson has become the second NFL head coach to contract the COVID-19 virus.

Sources tell NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero that the Eagles head coach has tested positive for COVID-19.

Pederson informed the team Sunday evening and the Eagles have since released a statement.

According to Pelissero, Pederson is asymptomatic and will continue to lead the virtual meetings. Assistant head coach Duce Staley will handle the on-site duties during Pederson’s absence as things pick up in the early stages of training camp.

Saints head coach Sean Payton revealed that he contracted the COVID-19 virus in March, when the ongoing global pandemic first struck the United States. Payton has since been cleared of the virus.
