Nashville SC is going to have to wait another year to play in the MLS.

The Tennessee-based team, which made their MLS debut in February, announced that they have decided to withdraw from the MLS Is Back tournament due to nine players contracting the coronavirus while preparing for the league’s return.

“Due to the number of positive tests, the club has been unable to train since arriving in Orlando and would not be able to play matches,” said MLS commissioner Don Garber.

They become the second club forced to miss the tournament due to COVID-19. The tournament, which began on Thursday when the Philadelphia Union beat New York City FC 1-0, is now down to 24 clubs.

Injured Jets stars Mark Scheifele, Patrik Laine to see specialists after Game 1 injuries

As if Saturday night wasn’t rough enough for the Winnipeg Jets.

Aside from a disastrous 4-1 loss to the Calgary Flames in Game 1 of their Stanley Cup qualifying series, the team announced that both their star forwards Mark Scheifele and Patrik Laine are seeing specialists to determine the extent of their injuries.

Scheifele left Saturday’s game early in the first period after sustaining a leg injury in a collision with Matthew Tkachuk. Jets head coach Paul Maurice has since accused the feisty Flames forward of intentionally injuring Scheifele.

“He could have cut his Achilles. He could have ended the man’s career. It’s an absolutely filthy, disgusting hit,”  said Maurice.

Laine sustained a hand injury in the third while colliding with Flames captain Mark Giordano and forward Sam Bennett.

Game 2 of the series takes place on Monday at 2:30pm/ET.

It appears Major League Baseball might finally get back to normal after a wild week involving a coronavirus outbreak, cancellation/postponement of several games, and the threat of the season being cancelled.

It has been reported that the Philadelphia Phillies, and the Miami Marlins have not reported new coronavirus cases over the past couple of days, clearing them to resume their schedules next week.

Both teams have played just three games in 2020, and haven’t taken the field since last Sunday due to a COVID-19 outbreak that saw nearly 20 Marlins players/coaches, and two Phillies staff members test positive for the virus.

Assuming there is no setbacks, the Phillies will be back in action on Monday to begin a series against the New York Yankees, while the Marlins will start four-game series over a span of three days with the Baltimore Orioles over three days starting on Tuesday.
