Seven K-State football players test positive
Seven members of the Kansas State football team have tested positive for COVID-19 in the first outbreak since the Wildcats convened for summer workouts in June.
The Wildcats will continue to practice for the season opener Sept. 12 against Arkansas State.
Wildcats coach Chris Klieman said this week he was wary about the first rounds of large-scale testing since students arrived on campus.
“I think every institution is worried about that over the new few weeks to a month with all of the students coming back,” Klieman said. “It’s going to be difficult, there’s no question. They’re still 18-to-22-year-old college students.”
