The unbeaten Arizona Cardinals will be without their head coach for their Week 6 matchup in Cleveland.

Kliff Kingsbury has tested positive for COVID-19 and will miss Sunday's showdown against the Browns, the Cardinals announced Friday night.

Quarterbacks coach Cam Turner and defensive lineman Zach Allen also tested positive and will miss the game.

Kingsbury will become the first NFL head coach to miss a game this season due to COVID-19.

Defensive coordinator Vance Joseph and assistant head coach/special teams coordinator Jeff Rodgers will split head coaching responsibilities in Kingsbury's absence. Joseph has prior head coaching experience, leading the Denver Broncos from 2017-18.

NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reported the Cardinals will enter enhanced COVID protocols, and added that the NFL isn't currently considering making any changes to Sunday's game.

Earlier this week, star pass rusher Chandler Jones was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list after testing positive. Jones isn't expected to play against Cleveland.

The Cardinals are the NFL's last remaining undefeated team at 5-0.
