The Carolina Panthers planned to return to their practice facility on Wednesday after the latest rounds of COVID-19 testing produced no new positive results, ESPN reported.

The team was told to work from home on Monday and Tuesday after a presumptive positive test on Monday. Backup guard Michael Schofield was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list later in the day, and on Friday, Tyler Larsen - another reserve guard - was put on the list.

Being placed on the list means a player tested positive for COVID-19 or was identified as exposed to the virus through contact tracing.

Last week, the team practiced with heightened safety protocols after a member of the Atlanta Falcons -- their opponent on Oct. 11 -- tested positive for the virus. Carolina lost 23-16 to the Chicago Bears on Sunday.

The Panthers (3-3) remain on schedule to meet the Saints (3-2) in New Orleans this Sunday.
