Miles Robinson is one of two players listed as “Not Medically Cleared to Play” on Atlanta United’s injury report for Wednesday’s game at Orlando, indicating that he’s the player who twice tested positive for COVID-19.
The only other player listed on the injury report is Josef Martinez, who is out for the season. Not medically cleared to play is the injury-report status for players who have tested positive.
Robinson played in Saturday’s game against D.C. United at Mercedes-Benz Stadium.
The team said Monday that the player who tested positive was asymptomatic. The player tested positive Sunday and then again Monday. The rest of the team was tested Sunday and was scheduled to be tested again Tuesday. The results of those tests wouldn’t be available until overnight. The team is schedule to depart for Orlando on Wednesday morning, as per league policy.
The team declined to comment Tuesday.
Interim manager Stephen Glass on Monday said that there were no injuries that would prevent any players who were available for D.C. United not to be available to play against Orlando.
Robinson, 23, has started 15 games as part of 16 appearances this season. The centerback was one of the better defenders in MLS last season, finishing top five in the league’s defender-of-the-year voting.
Atlanta United’s other centerbacks include Fernando Meza, Anton Walkes, Franco Escobar, Laurence Wyke and George Campbell.
