As we continue down the grim road that we are currently on, it remains uncertain if the ongoing coronavirus pandemic will force the National Football League to cancel training camp and possibly the preseason going forward.
If it gets better, then HBO’s “Hard Knocks” is ready to get to work.
According to a report from ESPN’s Adam Schefter, “Hard Knocks” will feature both the Los Angeles Rams and Los Angeles Chargers.
“NFL Films, which produces the show with HBO, would be excited to have not one, but two teams volunteer for “Hard Knocks,” and it would, in the words of one source, “be special to figure out the creative for a ‘supersized’ series this summer.”
The announcement had been scheduled to be made at last week’s NFL annual meeting, but the meeting was canceled because of the pandemic. NFL Films plans for the show go on, assuming training camp does.”
The Chargers have never appeared on “Hard Knocks,” while the Rams last appeared in 2016. Both teams are scheduled to open up their new stadium in 2020, but schedules could change drastically with what is going on in the world right now.
