Per a source with knowledge of the situation, the Saints learned late Saturday night that fullback Michael Burton tested positive for COVID-19.

While it’s possible that Burton’s positive is a false positive, the league and the Saints have commenced supplemental testing of players who were in close proximity to Burton. The league’s contact tracing identified three players. Four other players not identified via bracelets worn by the players were sitting near Burton on the plane, including running back Alvin Kamara.

Earlier on Saturday the NFL was forced to move the Pats-Chiefs game to Tuesday after Cam Newton tested positive for Coronavirus.

It’s currently unclear what’s going to happen with the Lions-Saints game on Sunday.
