LaFleur: Packers in advanced COVID protocols after Barry tests positive
GREEN BAY, Wis. (WBAY) - The Green Bay Packers could be without their defensive coordinator Thursday when they face the undefeated Arizona Cardinals. Joe Barry has tested positive for COVID-19.
Packers Head Coach Matt LaFleur said Monday that the team is in advanced COVID-19 protocols with the possibility of other staff members being positive.
All coaches meetings Monday are virtual.
However, LaFleur is holding out hope for a possibility that Barry could join the team Thursday. LaFleur says Barry is vaccinated against COVID-19 and needs two negative tests.
NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo was first to report the news Monday morning.
The Packers are 6-1 after defeating the Washington Football Team Sunday at Lambeau Field.
The Packers defense came up big in the red zone. The team recorded four sacks.
“I think our defense is playing with a lot of confidence,” said Coach Matt LaFleur. “They’ve faced a lot of adversity, too, just in terms of losing a lot of key players.”
