Sources: 8 with Saints test positive for COVID

The New Orleans Saints have had eight members of the organization test positive for COVID-19, calling into question their status for Sunday’s game against the Carolina Panthers, sources told ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

The total includes six offensive coaches, one player and a nutritionist, according to a source.

Saints head coach Sean Payton said during the summer that the team’s coaching and personnel staffs were 100% vaccinated.

The Saints play Sunday at 1 p.m. ET at Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte. They played their Week 1 home opener at Jacksonville’s TIAA Bank Field after being displaced because of Hurricane Ida, beating the Green Bay Packers 38-3.

The team is practicing at TCU’s facility in Fort Worth, Texas.

ESPN’s Mike Triplett contributed to this report.
