It’s worth noting that the league was shut down prior to this test becoming back positive. So, the XFL was done whether or not a player tested positive.

Obviously, our thoughts and prayers are with this unknown player, and we’re hoping that he makes a full recovery.

On top of that, we hope he didn’t spread it to anybody.

It’s truly mind-boggling how quickly the entire world of sports shut down in response to coronavirus. The NBA suspended games Wednesday night, and the dominos quickly fell after that.

Every single major sports league has shuttered scheduled games, and the XFL just ended the season entirely. It’s truly a terrible time for sports.
