We knew before the season ever started that the 2020 NFL season was going to be a bumpy road. And while COVID-19 has hit a few NFL locker rooms, the Miami Dolphins had not seen many cases, since early in camp.
That changed today, when we found out a short time ago from NFL Network’s Tom Pellisero that a Miami Dolphins assistant coach has tested positive for COVID-19.
The #Dolphins are in the intensive protocols after an assistant coach tested positive for COVID-19, sources tell me and @MikeGarafolo. They will have a walkthrough later today. Game on as scheduled Sunday at Arizona.— Tom Pelissero (@TomPelissero) November 6, 2020
The Miami Dolphins later released a statement of their own confirming the initial report.

I’m sure we will hear more from this as the weekend progresses.
Today, the team changed their daily schedule from a full-practice to a walkthrough, as they prepare to head west for their matchup versus Arizona. As of now, the Dolphins-Cardinals game is still scheduled for Sunday at 4:05 PM ET. Whether or not that changes, is anyone’s guess.
We will keep you updated throughout the day if we hear anything more on this from the Dolphins.
