ESPN: No reports of close contacts on team

The Packers placed newly-signed offensive tackle Jared Veldheer on the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday due to testing positive for the virus, but there are no close contact concerns, according to a report from ESPN.

Per reporting by Field Yates and Rob Demovsky, Veldheer had cleared protocol on Monday and practiced with the team Tuesday, but “the standard contact tracing investigation did not deem any other players as close contacts.”

Veldheer did not practice Wednesday.
