GREEN BAY — Green Bay Packers defensive coordinator, Joe Barry, has contracted COVID-19 and will likely miss Thursday's game against Arizona Cardinals, according to reports from the NFL Network.

Barry will still be able to help with game planning, but that will all be done virtually. NFL coaches can't work remotely on game day, so he won't have any contact with the team Thursday.

The game against the Cardinals could be a pivotal game. Both the Packers and Cardinals are at the top of their respective divisions, and this game could have playoff seeding implications.
