USC football will stop training again as the symptomatic player goes through testing


A U.S.C footballer has resigned from personal activities on Thursday and is virtually continuing preparations for Saturday’s game against Colorado after a player showed symptoms of COVID-19, the school announced Thursday.

Two players gave a positive result for COVID-19 earlier this week and another five are quarantined for contact tracking. USC canceled the practice and closed its facility on Tuesday, but returned to personal practice on Wednesday after PCR testing and contact tracking was completed under the direction of Los Angeles County health officials.

It is unclear how a further positive test would affect the ability of Trojans against Colorado. We will get an update on the game after the school gets further testing results, the school said.

Pac-12 canceled two games earlier this week, leading to a pair of Utah and Washington on Saturday in Seattle.
