Another NFL team had a COVID-19 scare, and this time, it's close to home.

The Indianapolis Colts initially announced Friday that four individuals within the organization had tested positive for COVID-19, though it wasn't specified what role those individuals held within the organization.

Later, a statement issued by the team said that the four samples had been re-tested, and were confirmed as negative.

After originally closing its practice facility due to the COVID-19 scare, the Indianapolis Colts have also now announced that the team's practice facility will be open.

"After consultation with the NFL and Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Allen Sills, the team will open the practice facility this afternoon under the league’s intensive protocol," the statement from the Indianapolis Colts said on Friday.

The team will continue preparation for Sunday’s game against Cincinnati.
