The good news for the Las Vegas Raiders is that they had no positive coronavirus tests Sunday morning and their game against the visiting Tampa Bay Buccaneers will kickoff at 1:05 p.m. PT.

But the Raiders’ consequences of dealing with the virus is not over. Fox’s Jay Glazer reported that the Raiders are facing major fines and a potential loss of a draft pick.

The Raiders have had several issues with breaking NFL coronavirus protocol. The team and players have been fined a total of $565,000 so far.

However, here is another report:

The Raiders’ latest issue began when right tackle Trent Brown tested positive last week and the other four starting offensive linemen had to miss the entire week of practice because they were in close contact with Brown. All four players will start today.

However, safety Johnathan Abram was in close contact with Brown on Tuesday and he won’t play today, along with Brown. The NFL Network reported the two players went shoe shopping on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, Raiders coach Jon Gruden is reportedly “livid” the game didn’t get postponed.
