The unbeaten Arizona Cardinals will be without head coach Kliff Kingsbury on Sunday after he tested positive for coronavirus.

Arizona announced on Friday that Kingsbury had contracted COVID-19, ruling him out of the NFL clash with the Cleveland Browns.

Cardinals quarterbacks coach Cam Turner and defensive tackle Zach Allen will also be sidelined against the Browns following positive tests.

Defensive co-ordinator Vance Joseph and assistant head coach/special teams co-ordinator Jeff Rodgers will share head coach responsibilities in Kingsbury's absence.

The Cardinals lead the NFC West and are the NFL's lone undefeated team at 5-0 as they look to stay perfect this week.

This is the fifth time the Cardinals – an original NFL franchise – have won their first five games but first time since moving to Arizona. They did it twice as the Chicago Cardinals (1922 and 1923) and twice as the St Louis Cardinals (1966 and 1974), per Stats Perform.

Arizona quarterback Kyler Murray has attempted at least 30 passes and completed more than 70 per cent of them in each of his last four games – that matches the longest such streak by a Cardinals player over the last 60 seasons. Kurt Warner had a four-game streak of that kind in 2008.
