Today, the NFL announced modified Covid-19 protocols for fully vaccinated vs not fully vaccinated players.
The league is encouraging players to get vaccinated and these protocols drive home that point. Limiting social, media and marketing sponsorship activities may be push some guys needed to get the shot.
Matt Rhule told us today that while he encourages the team as a whole to get vaccinated, he understands and respects that it’s a personal decision for each player. Rhule wouldn’t say how many Panthers are vaccinated, but mentioned it is below the level they’d like.
