Sources: NFL still figuring out coronavirus protocols with league determined to start season on time | SNY

The NFL is determined to play the 2020 season despite the spike in COVID-19 cases across the country and the potential for billions in lost revenue. But as the NFL Players Association told agents on a conference call Monday, they're still trying to determine exactly how to do it while keeping everyone safe.

That's what several agents got from the call with NFLPA executive director DeMaurice Smith, NFLPA medical director Thom Mayer and NFLPA president J.C. Tretter. The union outlined some plans in the 45-minute call, like testing players three times per week once they return to the facility. But they told agents most of the protocols are a work in progress, and they expect to work with the NFL to figure them out in the next 30 days.

"There's just so much that they don't know," an agent who was on the call told SNY. "They're going to play and they'll do what they can to keep everyone healthy, but they just don't know how it's all going to work."
