The Eagles announced Sunday that the coach tested positive for the coronavirus. Pederson held a virtual news conference with reporters Monday. He said he is asymptomatic.
"I'm not going to speculate on a timetable for me [to return]," Pederson said Monday. "I'll treat it just like [we] treat players.
"When I'm back, I'm back."
Assistant coach Duce Staley will handle on-site tasks while Pederson is away. Pederson will continue to lead virtual meetings.
"He is currently in self-quarantine and in communication with the team's medical staff," the Eagles said of Pederson. "The organization is following the protocols established by the NFL and the [players union].
"Any individuals in close contact with Pederson at our facility have been notified and will continue with daily testing procedures and compliance with all protocols before returning to the facility."
Pederson said he is "fortunate" he received the positive test during training camp and not in November or December, when he could have missed regular-season games.
Pederson said his confidence has not changed when asked about the NFL's coronavirus protocol and the likelihood of a completed season in 2020.
"My confidence hasn't changed at all," Pederson said. "I'm obviously optimistic, but I feel like we are going to play. I'm confident we are going to play. It's unfortunate. Like I told the team last night, this virus holds no prejudice. It can affect any of us."
"We have to abide by the protocols that are in place for our safety."
The Eagles reported to training camp last week and are scheduled to face the Washington Football Team on Sept. 13 at FedEx Field in Landover, Md.
