Report emerges about false-positive COVID-19 tests before Texans’ game vs Steelers

Texans, Steelers, COVID-19

The Houston Texans had a handful of false-positive COVID-19 tests before Sunday’s matchup against the Pittsburgh Steelers, according to Aaron Wilson of The Houston Chronicle.

Immediately following the positive test, additional tests were given to those players who then tested negative. The protocols of COVID-19 has been a sensitive subject early on into the season, often requiring layers of exertion on behalf of medical staffs to ensure the safety of the players and in some instances the fans. The end result of the situation was with no Texans players testing positive.

In this particular outing, there were no fans in attendance for Texans-Steelers; the capacity in the stadium is decided on a team-by-team basis.

The Steelers went on to win the contest against the Texans with a final score of 28-21. The Steelers furthered their winning streak as they head into a Week 4 matchup against the Tennessee Titans. The Texans are still searching for their first win of the season after seeing their early lead against the Steelers crumble.

Quarterback Deshaun Watson turned in a great performance, completing 19 of 27 passes for two touchdowns. He also had an interception. The Texans struggled in the running game, however. David Johnson led the team in rushing yards, which was only 23 yards off of 13 carries. He also had one touchdown.

The Texans wideouts were beneficial to their offensive success on Sunday as well, being responsible for two of their touchdowns. They will look to bounce back with their first win in Week 4 against the Minnesota Vikings.
