Any update on why he wasn't activated? I haven't read anything about his two negative tests requirement not being met.

There's evidence that he is vaccinated but maybe that's not the case and he has to be out until next week.

I'm guessing he either has to be unvaccinated or experiencing actual, significant symptoms. Neither would be great.

Could be vaccinated and asymptomatic but still testing positive.

You can be vaccinated and still get it. I know about a dozen people right now who are, most at worse suffering through the sniffles and maybe a loss of taste. If you have it you can't play. Just the time to get over it.

Plus supposedly, once you have it, you test positive for at least 3 months, per the dr.s office, so unless they use some other test, I am not sure how they know you are over it.

If he tested positive over the weekend it’s not a shock he hasnt already tested negative.

There's another and more plausible scenario:

BB didn't want to deal with the gametime uncertainty, so once Dugger went onto the COVID list, BB just went ahead and gameplanned without him.

And especially considering the bad weather- he may have considered that Allen would not have had the luxury of dealing with a wide open field and this one time, they could afford to lose Dugger.

That last part isn't true at all. I had COVID and didn't test positive at all after 3 days.
You will usually test positive for the antibodies for a while, but that's very individualized.

If he's not vaccinated, he (and the Pats) are in serious trouble for breaking league protocol in interviews.

If you test positive, you're probably sitting for a week because you won't likely suddenly test negative.

Not a doctor, don't claim to be, just what the Dr. told me.

From google.

How long can you test positive for COVID-19?
People who have recovered from COVID-19 can continue to test positive for up to 3 months after their infection.

What you did here is classic spreading of misinformation (probably unintentionally). Your doc said "can continue to test positive." You said "you test positive" i.e "might" vs. "always."

I tested positive for 3 weeks after getting COVID. Just like any kind of virus, it affects everyone a little differently.

Dugger could/should be good to go... as long as he doesn't get his COVID advice from AB. :oops: :p

What you did was say I was completely wrong, which obviously was false. I left out the "can" on my phone. The rest is simply you being a DB and rather than admitting fault, trying to shift the blame. GFY
