Miami Dolphins co-offensive coordinator George Godsey tested positive for COVID-19 and has been sent home, ESPN reported on Sunday.

Godsey has been vaccinated, so the 42-year-old will be able to return once he receives two negative test results separated by at least 24 hours.

Dolphins co-OC Eric Studesville will handle the offensive coaching duties in the absence of Godsey, who also coaches the team’s tight ends.

Per ESPN, an undisclosed number of Dolphins tight ends are expected to land on the reserve/COVID-19 list as close contacts.

Studesville and Godsey were promoted as co-offensive coordinators after Chan Gailey resigned on Jan. 6.
