An unspecified number of Alabama football players reportedly have tested positive for COVID-19 upon their return to campus.

Alabama Rivals site BamaInsider reported the development Thursday but did not reveal the names of the players or exactly how many returned a positive test. The site said sources indicated as many as five players could have tested positive.

The NCAA announced that members of football and basketball teams - both men's and women's - could return for voluntary, on-campus workouts this week.

The number of COVID-19 cases in Alabama has spiked.

The state's Department of Public Health reported Thursday morning that there were 18,776 coronavirus cases in Alabama -- 302 more than Wednesday.
