Seahawks, NFL Stars Express Concerns with NFL Over Lack of COVID-19 Protocols

(UPDATE – 1:25 p.m.) Pro Football Talk says the league and the NFLPA have agreed to daily COVID-19 testing.

More context from NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero.

(ORIGINAL – 11:28 a.m.) Dozens of NFL players tweeted out concerns over the NFL’s lack of protocols for player health and safety, and overall COVID-19 response.

An important bit of context from Texans star defensive end JJ Watt detailed what the NFL players have been told and have not been told, as of Sunday.

One of the concerns raised encompasses the NFL apparently ignoring experts they hired to help with procedural elements to return to play.

To think the NFL has had this long to come up with protocols, and yet they still don’t have something in place is frustrating several players, including Seahawks wide receivers DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett.

Seattle linebackers, Bobby Wagner and Bruce Irvin, called on the NFL to make a safe work environment.
