Rachel Bush will be damned if people think Cole Beasley, who is proudly unvaccinated, as well as several other players on the team are being blamed for being sent home for being a close contact to a trainer who testede positive for COVID-19. Not to mention, the trainer is vaccinated.
On Tuesday, it was announced by Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News that Bills wide receivers Cole Beasley and Gabriel Davis were both sent home from practice on Tuesday and will be out for the next five days due to close contact with a staffer who tested positive for COVID-19.
A ton of people jumped online and used it as a ‘gotcha’ moment for Cole Beasley who has been railing against the vaccine and the rules put forth towards unvaccinated players in the league.
Jordan Poyer’s wife, Rachel Bush, was having none of that as she took to Twitter and went off.
“I know damn well y’all are not about to put any blame on the players who 1) don’t have covid and are tested every day but 2) were in contact with a VACCINATED staff member. Y’all are so backwards it’s insane !”
“When the vaccinated have been proven to be the problem over and over in the NFL so far-especially within the bills- but the unvaccinated who don’t have covid are the ones getting punished? Somebody better fix this sh*t ASAP.”
Both Beasley and Davis reportedly tested negative for COVID-19. According to the NFL-NFLPA COVID-19 health and safety protocols, vaccinated players who test negative after close contact don’t have to self isolate, even if the person they came into contact with was symptomatic. As long as they test negative and are asymptomatic, they can continue to practice as long as they keep testing negative and have no symptoms.
When an unvaccinated player has high-risk close contact with someone who has tested positive, they will not be allowed into the team facility for at least five days, and they have to test negative on each of those days before they can re-enter the building and resume practicing again.
