The Latest: NFL’s Washington team not yet allowing fans

The Latest on the effects of the coronavirus outbreak on sports around the world:


The Washington Football Team will allow only friends and family in attendance at FedEx Field on Sunday against the Dallas Cowboys, even after Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan allowed teams to fill outdoor stadiums to 10% capacity.

A spokeswoman said there would be no change from Washington’s previous arrangement to not sell tickets to fans for this game at the stadium in Landover, Maryland. At 10% capacity, roughly 8,000 fans would be allowed, something that remains possible later this season.


Toledo’s men’s basketball team has halted all activities after six players tested positive this week, the school said Wednesday.

The results came on Tuesday during regular weekly testing and a day after the school said coach Tod Kowalczyk had tested positive for COVID-19 and was self-isolating for 10 days.

Those players who tested positive also will self-isolate, the university said.


The Carolina Panthers have added kicker Joey Slye and offensive tackle Trent Scott to the COVID-19 reserve list, bringing their total number of players on the list to four.

Still, the Panthers practiced as normal Wednesday in preparation for their game Sunday at New Orleans.

Scott becomes the third reserve offensive lineman to be placed on the COVID-19/reserve list in the last six days, joining Tyler Larsen and Michael Schofield.

The moves don’t necessarily mean those players have tested positive; they could have come in close contact with someone who has tested positive. It’s unclear at this point if they’ll be cleared to play Sunday against the Saints. The Panthers don’t currently have a backup kicker on the roster or practice squad.
