Seattle Seahawks quarterback Drew Lock tested positive for COVID-19 on Tuesday, shortly after coach Pete Carroll told reporters that Lock would start the team's next preseason game against the Chicago Bears.

Instead, Lock will miss Thursday's game and Geno Smith will lead Seattle as the team's quarterback competition heads into the home stretch.
