Don’t do it. Don’t you dare do it. Do not make the “J.J. Arcega-Whiteside finally caught something” joke. We’re better than that.
Hopefully, on a serious note, this is contained to the three guys listed. JJAW and Hightower have barely seen the field since the Birds started to get more healthy in the receiver department. Burnett has been out of the picture for a while now.
The Eagles confirmed the case but didn’t specify who the positive test is:

Marcus Epps just came off the list and has been back at practice.
We’ll continue to monitor.
