The team announced Friday afternoon that head coach Cliff Kingsbury, defensive tackle Zach Allen and quarterback coach Cam Turner had all tested positive for COVID-19.

Kingsbury, Allen and Turner will not travel with the team for their Sunday road game against the Cleveland Browns as they enter into COVID protocol.


Cardinals defensive coordinator Vance Joseph and assistant head coach/special teams coordinator Jeff Rodgers will split their head coaching duties. Other team assistants will perform duties where deemed necessary. This includes offensive line coach/run game coordinator Sean Kugler possibly helping with offensive play-calling.

The Cardinals now have an NFL-high 21 positive COVID tests since training camp began in July.

Those a positive test shrug off entering the intensive protocol.

League protocol requires vaccinated players and personnel to test negative twice after testing positive in order not to be considered high risk. Cardinals have been 100% vaccinated since the beginning of September.
