New Orleans Saints left tackle Terron Armstead tested positive for COVID-19 and will miss Sunday's game against the Denver Broncos.

"Found out this morning that I tested positive for Covid!" Armstead posted Saturday on Twitter. "I feel completely normal and ready to go play with my guys tomorrow. Unfortunately that can't happen and while that (expletive) sucks, I can't downplay the impact covid has had on so many lives. Everyone stay safe."

A Pro Bowl selection in 2018 and 2019, the 29-year-old Armstead has started all 10 games this season.

Armstead has started 81 of his 85 games since New Orleans drafted him in the third round in 2013.

James Hurst, 28, is listed as the backup on the depth chart and could start Sunday when the Saints (8-2) put their seven-game winning streak on the line at Denver (4-6).
