Many Americans seem to be frustrated with varying Covid protocols and the NFL players are among them.
According the the NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero, the majority of players around the league are tired of the Covid protocols and would like to see them eliminated entirely. That means no more, testing, no more quarantining, and certainly no more missed games. This news comes on the heals of what has easily been the league’s worst week of Covid outbreaks yet, as dozens of players from different teams have landed on the Covid-IR in recent days.
The hardest-hit team right now is easily the Cleveland Browns, who are without nearly half their roster and several members of their coaching staff as they get ready to host the Las Vegas Raiders on Saturday. According to recent reports, the league is currently evaluating whether the game should be moved to Monday or Tuesday instead.
At the moment it seems unlikely that the league will eliminate its protocols, as union leadership continues to advocate for daily testing instead. But that could all change, especially with the way things have been unraveling over the last few days. Stay tuned.
