Pittsburgh Steelers’ season comes to an end following the infamous loss in the AFC playoffs wildcard at the Cleveland Browns. But the drama around the team and the 2020 season is not over yet.
Just hours after the Browns loss, the Steelers reportedly had to shut down their factories as the players tested positive for COVID-19, while the league pursued a typical contact tracking. Steelers have to stay away from the place.
This means player delays in locker cleaning, exit interview delays, and many other aspects that accompany the end-of-year process.
According to Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, the player who tested the positives was none other than Eric Ebron.
TE Eric Ebron played in Sunday̵7;s semi-finals after missing the regular season finals in Cleveland because he was on the Reserve / Covid-19 roster as a close contact. He tested positive on Monday, forcing the Steelers to shut down South Bank venues for players and coaches.

Ebron missed the Steelers’ 17th week game against the Browns after touching up high-risk Joe Haden, who had tested positive for COVID-19 after that first news. Probably from the shock that Ebron tested positive.
As of last season, Ebron’s positive test results meant very little to the organization. Players are allowed to go on a normal life without worrying that a positive test will affect the upcoming game.Once the venue opens, players are required to take the above steps accordingly. normal
The hope is that Ebron has no extreme cases of COVID-19 and no other spreads have been spread across the rest of the players, coaches and staff of the organization.
