When the Arizona Cardinals face the Houston Texans on Sunday afternoon at 1:25 p.m. local time at State Farm Stadium, head coach Kliff Kingsbury will be back on the sidelines.
He’s been wiped out of protocols and could be back on the squad, as announced by Mark Dalton, the team’s vice president for media relations, on Twitter. Sunday morning.
According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, Kingsbury finally tested negative for COVID-19 on Saturday. He has no symptoms. He needed a second negative test on Sunday to be cleared.
Defensive coordinator Vance Joseph said on Friday the Cardinals were ready for the game anyway.
Kingsbury will resume his duties as head coach and offensive playmaker.
Quarterbacks coach Cam Turner, who also missed the game last week after testing positive, was cleared earlier in the week and was in practice.
The Cardinals still have three players – linebacker Chandler Jones and defensive linemen Zach Allen and Corey Peters – on the COVID roster right now. They won’t play against the Texans.
