The team said the player did not show any symptoms in the March 7 game, but three days later reported symptoms to the medical staff and has been in quarantine since then.

The player tested positive Friday.

"The XFL is monitoring the situation closely and taking every measure necessary in accordance with recommendations set forth by the (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention)," said Jim Christman, Dragons team director.

The league is alerting players, staff, vendors and others associated with the Dragons, Roughnecks and Battlehawks, whom the Dragons played against in the Feb. 29 and March 7 games.
