Two days after testing positive for COVID-19, former University of Hawaii and current Seattle Seahawks receiver John Ursua has tested negative two straight times, implying that his initial test was a false positive.

Ursua, who was not previously experiencing any coronavirus symptoms, confirmed with KHON2 sports director Rob DeMello that he received another negative test on Monday night.

Following his positive test, Ursua was placed on the NFL’s Reserve/COVID-19 list on Sunday. He was the first member of the Seahawks to do so at the time. He now expects to be removed from the list and will rejoin the team in training camp on Tuesday.
