Broncos Executives John Elway, Joe Ellis Test Positive For COVID-19

The NFL continues to take hits from COVID-19. On Tuesday morning, it was announced that the Denver Broncos had two executives test positive for the virus.

Those two Bronco executives include president/general manager -- and Hall of Fame quarterback -- John Elway and CEO Joe Ellis. They are both isolating at home. The news was announced by several outlets via social media, including Ian Rapoport with the NFL Network.

The key part of Rapoport's statement is that it is believed to have originated outside of the building. It doesn't mean that no one else within the organization could not have contracted it, but it does mean that there isn't currently a breakout going on with the team.

Denver's facilities were already closed on Tuesday due to it being Election Day. But it will be interesting to see if that continues on into the week with the news. It's doubtful, but possible.

Here is the statement released by the team following the news:
