On July 25, Rutgers shut down workouts and placed the entire football program under quarantine. The numbers have only worsened since. Altogether, 28 players have tested positive for the novel coronavirus pandemic, as have multiple staff members, NJ.com reported. There are players that are dealing with symptoms, though several are asymptomatic. That number nearly doubled from the 15 confirmed cases from last week. The COVID-19 outbreak was linked to a party on campus that included student-athletes from multiple sports, according to NJ.com.
