Andrew Siciliano not hosting Red Zone Channel after positive COVID-19 test

For the first time since DirecTV launched its Sunday Ticket Red Zone Channel in 2005, Andrew Siciliano is not be hosting the weekly NFL highlight show.

Shortly before Sunday's early games were set to kick off, Siciliano revealed on social media that he tested positive for COVID-19 and therefore would not be taking his familiar spot on TV sets across the country. 

After that positive result early Sunday morning, Siciliano said a retest came back negative. However, "out of the super-abundance of caution and to be respectful to my teammates, I'm sitting this one out."

Dan Hellie will take Siciliano's place in the anchor chair for Week 6.

"I feel great, by the way," Siciliano said in his video announcement, "and I will be back ASAP."
