Jets’ COVID-19 problem appears to be under control

The Jets appear to have escaped a COVID-19 outbreak.

A day after placing running back La’Mical Perine on the reserve/COVID-19 list and holding out several players from practice for precautionary reasons, all of them except for cornerback Blessuan Austin were expected to practice on Thursday, coach Adam Gase said.

Austin has tested negative for the virus, but he wasn’t feeling well, so the Jets decided to be safe with him. He was one of six defensive starters held out of practice on Wednesday due to contact tracing. The others – safety Marcus Maye, linebacker Neville Hewitt, defensive linemen Chuma Edoga and John Franklyn-Myers and cornerback Bryce Hall – were all back.

Perine is the first Jets player to test positive for COVID-19. He will miss Sunday’s finale against the Patriots.
