Indianapolis Colts defensive coordinator Matt Eberflus missed Sunday’s preseason game against the visiting Carolina Panthers for COVID-19 related reasons.

The team did not specify whether Eberflus had tested positive or come in close contact with an infected person.

The Colts said safeties coach Alan Williams would handle his duties on Sunday.

Eberflus, 51, has been Indy’s defensive coordinator since 2018. Before that, he was an assistant coach with the Dallas Cowboys (2011-17) and Cleveland Browns (2009-10).
