As for Friday, Washington and Indianapolis had the two lowest COVID-19 vaccination rates among the 32 teams in the league, according to the person who spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity because the league hasnít released the numbers, which are changing daily.

Pittsburgh, Miami, Carolina and Denver have the highest vaccination rates and are among 10 teams that have achieved at least 85%. About 73% of players have been vaccinated. Teams on the lower end of the vaccination table face potential competitive disadvantages.

The NFL doesnít plan to cancel any games this season, the person said.

In a memo sent to clubs last week and obtained by the AP on Thursday, the NFL, in conjunction with the NFLPA, updated protocols to allow teams traveling to joint practices to have their daily maximum of Tier 1 and Tier 2 individuals. The traveling party will be either 100 or 140, depending on the clubís vaccination percentage. The club must limit the number of individuals traveling on the team transportation to 85 but may travel additional Tier 1 and Tier 2 staff up to the applicable daily Tier limits separately to attend the practice.

Also, beginning at the start of training camp, teams will be required to develop a method to visually identify fully vaccinated Tier 1 and Tier 2 individuals.

Utilizing color-coded wristbands or credentials are recommended but clubs are free to implement other methods.

Last month, the NFL and the playersí union updated protocols to loosen restrictions for fully vaccinated players and to encourage others to get the vaccine.

Unvaccinated players must continue to get daily testing, wear masks and practice physical distancing. They wonít be allowed to eat meals with teammates, canít participate in media or marketing activities while traveling, arenít permitted to use the sauna or steam room and may not leave the team hotel or interact with people outside the team while traveling. Vaccinated players will not have any of those restrictions.

Anyone read about the penalties if an unvaccinated player breaks protocol?

I dont think wed be able to keep these young guys from doing young guy things like go out, socialize etc .. especially when they see half their vaccinated teammates going out and eating, socializing etc

On road trips .. unvaccinated players have to stay in their room? Keep their masks on? Not socialize and play madden with other teammates? Good luck with that.
So the NFL is putting players in white collar prison? Sounds legit. Fucking mafia. And we know it's not because they care about the players. Just trying to protect their money coming in.
Cause you know, he would step across the line. Habitually. He's a habitual line stepper.
