The Colts canceled their media availability on Friday. The team is in the process of confirming the test results.

Indianapolis (3-2) is scheduled to host the Cincinnati Bengals (1-3-1) at 1 p.m. ET on Sunday.

The Colts are the latest team to deal with a COVID-19 situation. The Tennessee Titans rescheduled two games after 24 members of the organization, including 13 players, tested positive for the coronavirus. The New England Patriots also rescheduled one game out of virus concerns.
