Mizzou football gives COVID-19 update


Mizzou football coach Eli Drinkwitz said four of his players are currently out after testing positive for COVID-19. He added there are 14 other players currently in quarantine due to contact tracing.

"This is the most number we've had out from COVID-related issues, so that's not ideal," Drinkwitz said on a Zoom news conference Tuesday. "We anticipated this would be the case with students back on campus and just kind of the way this thing has operated. I think our guys are still trying to do a really good job of practicing safe social distancing and trying to do the very best they can not to catch it or spread it."
