The Houston Texans had a "batch" of false positive COVID-19 tests prior to Sunday's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

The report did not indicate when the false positives occurred, but subsequent retests were negative and no player missed Sunday's game for testing reasons.

Players are tested daily, including a "pregame" test the morning before the game. Before the beginning of the season, the NFL implemented a new protocol that accelerated the process of identifying false positives.
