It’s unclear how this will impact any time in camp or the upcoming season.

The Texans and Broncos have both had players test positive, and now you can add Jackson to the list.

In the end, I don’t think there’s really any reason to panic at all. NFL teams have the necessary resources in spades to keep players safe and help them heal.
The biggest key is keeping a sick player, Jackson in this case, away from the rest of the squad. Let him rest, heal up and then bring him back once he’s ready.
The last thing the Broncos want to do is get the whole locker room infected.
