NFL-related Covid News

Message added by Hapless Bills Fan

Please refer to @SDS pinned post


This is NOT a thread for general covid-19 discussion - state of the pandemic across the country, what death rate is currently etc etc etc

It is to discuss:
-NFL Covid Policy (with references, not your speculation about how they test or what you think they should do)

-Player test results

-How NFL covid results affects teams and games

Let's hope that the Steelers don't get a wave of positives.  Steelers already burned their bye week and if the game is postponed/cancelled

it could cause the implementation of the 8 team playoff picture for each conference among other things.


It seems the NFL doesn't want to add that Week 18 from most things I've read.


Steelers week was burned by the Titans.  They should be disqualified from playoffs.

Exactly.    I think the Ravens should forfeit, be fined the amount of the Steelers game checks, and pay the Steelers.  But that's just me.

No name but likely a CB or someone who plays special teams based on who was reactivated.




The Baltimore Ravens announced on Thursday that a player has tested positive for COVID-19. The news comes three days before the Ravens are slated to host the New England Patriots on "Sunday Night Football." That puts Baltimore back in the league's intensive protocol a day after Ravens All-Pro cornerback Marlon Humphrey was activated off of the team's reserve/COVID-19 list.

NFL’s medical chief says masks are the new seat belts



“It’s a little bit like when seat belts came along,” said NFL chief medical officer Dr. Allen Sills during a league conference call Tuesday. “Overnight, you had to do a lot of education about why wearing seat belts was important.”'


In a trend that has been a bane-of-existence facsimile of the outside world, the NFL has had to continue to implement exhaustive and repetitive lessons on why masks are still the first line of COVID-19 defense for every franchise. Case in point: Last weekend, more than three months into this season’s non-stop harping about masks, the NFL was again faced with a development that is going to lead to another round of warnings from the league office. Days after issuing a mandate to teams that players and personnel must mask up for pregame and postgame interactions, every franchise that took the field on Sunday broke the new rule in some way.




Sunday’s result wasn’t a surprise, of course. Like so many other mask-related mandates, it’s clear the NFL expected the first week after the changes to have compliance issues. And it’s expected that the league will extend its first warning to teams about the less-than-perfect adherence in postgame exchanges Sunday, largely because league office and medical officials aren’t going to let this new mandate slide off the agenda.
