More COVID problems in the National Football League - the Indianapolis Colts say "several" members of the organization tested positive they're shutting down the team facility.

On Friday, the Indianapolis Colts were the team affected by COVID-19 tests.

The team put out a statement that the facility was immediately closed and the team would work remotely on Friday.

The NFL team did not provide a specific number of people who were infected, how many players were involved or the identities of those testing positive.

The results of re-tests figure to determine whether or not the Colts' game against the Bengals can proceed on Sunday or must be postponed. "We are in communication with the National Football League and will have more information when available".

Indianapolis will host the Cincinnati Bengals at 1 p.m. on Sunday.

If the Indy-Cincinnati game requires a postponement, the National Football League should be able to push the game from Week 6 to Week 7 without any major scheduling changes. The Colts have a bye scheduled next week.

The Tennessee Titans, seemingly the Colts' main AFC South rivals this season, were forced to close their facility for almost two weeks and had two games rescheduled due to a coronavirus outbreak of over 20 players and personnel.
