NFL Recommends Some Sideline Players Wear Masks During Games
10/30/2020 9:30pm

The NFL is recommending that players on the sidelines who are not participating in a game or about to go on the field wear protective masks.In a memo obtained by The Associated Press on Friday, the leagues management council also suggested the 32 teams enhance physical distancing on the sidelines while the NFL considers expanding the bench area.Although the NFL stopped short of mandating masks for all players not on the field, it strongly encouraged all active players in the bench area who are not about to enter the game to wear masks while standing on the sideline and/or sitting on the bench.A player wearing a mask during a close contact has a significantly reduced probability of being designated a High Risk Close Contact after an exposure to a COVID-positive individual, the memo said.Citing a player who tested positive two days after playing in a game and who had close contacts with 17 teammates and two team staffers most of which occurred while the player was standing on the sideline we are strongly recommending that clubs continue to implement measures to encourage physical distancing among players and staff on the sidelines during games, the memo said.While the NFL considers expanding the bench area further down the sideline, teams may consider reconfiguring or adding benches.Assistant coaches and members of the football staff should pay particular attention to ensuring that players remain separated while waiting to enter the game, as well as avoiding grouping or bunching, the league said.Its really a look at how we can expand that physical distancing on the sideline the distancing and face masking are critical, said Dawn Aponte, the NFLs chief football administrative officer. Every week we are learning something and trying to share best practices with our clubs.The league also is offering an additional testing option for bus drivers retained by teams in the away city, prior to the teams arrival.The NFL has been particularly proactive in dealing with coaches who have not obeyed protocols though such efforts might seem unsuccessful given how Panthers coach Matt Rhule and some assistants on Thursday night skirted those rules about properly wearing masks. Several coaches, including Pete Carroll and Jon Gruden, were fined $100,000 for not obeying the requirements, and teams have been fined $250,000 apiece for sideline issues.We do try to remain in constant communication with the clubs through memos, phone calls, conference calls, one-offs, trying to remind and educate, Aponte said. Everyone needs to lead by example. It is more so about trying to educate and get everyone to adhere to the face-covering protocol.Earlier Friday, the NFL said that the Los Angeles Chargers game at Denver this weekend isnt in jeopardy after players on both teams tested positive for the coronavirus.No, it is not. Theres no change to the status of the game, NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy told The Associated Press. There have been 70-plus instances of a team having a player or players who test positive. The player is isolated and we conduct contact tracing to ensure to mitigate any risk of potential spread among the team.New York Giants guard Will Hernandez tested positive this week and most of the teams offensive linemen were barred from the practice facility. Hernandez is in isolation and it is unlikely he will play Monday against Tampa Bay.The Buccaneers had an equipment staff member test positive for COVID-19 this week.Two teams, the Tennessee Titans and New England Patriots, have had significant outbreaks of the coronavirus, causing juggling of the NFL schedule. Several other clubs have had isolated cases.We have to continue to reinforce all the messages about risk mitigation, something we can never say enough, said Dr. Allen Sills, the leagues chief medical officer. I think it just speaks to the need to be diligent all the time.More AP NFL: https://apnews.com/NFL and https://twitter.com/APNFL

Dodgers' Justin Turner Draws Criticism After Ignoring Isolation to Celebrate With Teammates
10/30/2020 7:59am

Los Angeles Countys chief medical officer said Thursday health officials are continuing to work with the Dodgers to gauge the extent of possible coronavirus exposure stemming from third-baseman Justin Turners positive COVID-19 test, and to ensure quarantine protocols are being followed.Dr. JeffreyGunzenhausertold reporters in an online briefing that health officials want to make sure we understand all persons who have been exposed are following the same protocols we expect of everybody.We want to find out who was exposed, whos been tested, are there any other cases, he said. And anybody whos been exposed needs to be in quarantine for 14 days.MLBOct 29MLB Says Turner Violated Protocols When He Returned to FieldDecision 2020Oct 29Hundreds of Vote Centers Are Opening in SoCal. Here&039s How to Find OneGunzenhausersaid he doesnt believe the entire team or organization will be required to quarantine, only those who were in close contact with Turner.We went over the criteria, he said. And the criteria are, have they been in close contact thats six feet for 15 minutes or more over a 24-hour period or did they have some kind of direct physical contact. They the Dodgers understand that. Theyve gone through and talked with everybody and anybody whos fulfilled that criteria is considered exposed and will be in quarantine for 14 days.The Dodgers conducted contact tracing procedures and are followingall theLos Angeles County quarantining recommendations for those affected, a team official told City News Service.The Dodgers returned to Los Angeles Wednesday, one day after their 3-1 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays in Arlington, Texas, gave them a six-game victory in the best-of-seven series.Turner, who was removed from Tuesdays game before the start of the eighth inning due to the positive COVID-19 test, was not with them and was expected to fly home separately on a charter flight.Turner drew criticism from Major League Baseball for leaving isolation after he was pulled from the game and joining his teammates in celebration on Globe Life Field, choosing to disregard the agreed-upon joint protocols and the instructions he was given regarding the safety and protection of others.While a desire to celebrate is understandable, Turners decision to leave isolation and enter the field was wrong and put everyone he came in contact with at risk, according to an MLB statement. When MLB Security raised the matter of being on the field with Turner, he emphatically refused to comply.The Commissioners Office has begun a full investigation into this matter and will consult with the Players Association within the parameters of the joint 2020 Operations Manual, MLB announced.Following the teams return to Los Angeles, Mayor EricGarcettisaid Wednesday that anyone who was potentially exposed to the virus needs to quarantine, no matter who they are.Turners diagnosis is a reminder that anybody can get this and anybody can pass this on too, so its a reminder of how safe we all need to be, with every action we take and everything we do,Garcettisaid.Ill leave it to the county, but I think the county has said that because there may have been exposure, folks should isolate. Thats whether youre a championship baseball player, whether youre the mayor or whether youre an everyday citizen. No matter who you are, I think that is the prudent thing to do.In a column in Thursdays Los Angeles Times, BillPlaschkewrote, One of the greatest team accomplishments in the history of Los Angeles sports has been marred by a singular act of selfishness, the divine tinged with disappointment, a lovable leader now bathed in disillusionment. In his seven years as a Dodger, the red-bearded Turner has become everybodys favorite hometown kid. Hes like an embraceable stuffed animal with real teeth. Hes shaggy, tough, resilient, kind, charitable, the player who gives an autographed ball to the nightly honored veteran, the player who began this abbreviated season warning teammates about their pandemic responsibility.Who would have thought he could be so irresponsibleTurner has not publicly responded to the criticism following news of his diagnosis and the teams victory. He wrote on his Twitter page, Thanks to everyone for reaching out I feel great, no symptoms at all. Just experienced every emotion you can possibly imagine. Cant believe I couldnt be out there to celebrate with my guys So proud of this team & unbelievably happy for the City of LA.Meanwhile, Dodger Stadiums team stores opened to the public on Thursday for the first time since the World Series victory, selling officially licensed merchandise commemorating their first championship since 1988.The Top of the Park store and Left Field Plaza store were both closed onWednesday, sothey could be stocked with World Series merchandise.

10/30/2020 1:05am

Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence has tested positive for COVID-19, putting into doubt whether the face of college football will be available to play the top-ranked Tigers biggest game of the season.Clemson coach Dabo Swinney said in a statement released by the school Thursday night that Lawrence is in isolation with mild symptoms.Swinney said Lawrence would miss Clemsons game Saturday against Boston College.

He led the Tigers 6-0, 5-0 Atlantic Coast Conference to a national championship as a freshman and back to the College Football playoff championship game last season.

But who knows Theres a lot of things that could happen.Swinney said that while Lawrence will be missed against the Eagles 4-2, 3-2, it was an opportunity for other guys to step up.Freshman passer D.J. Uiagalelei has been the first in after Lawrence this season when games get out of hand. Uiagalelei, at 6-4 and 250 pounds, was rated the countrys second-best college prospect by Rivals.com last season. He enrolled in January and went through spring drills until the coronavirus pandemic shut down college sports last March.Uiagalelei has completed 12 of 19 passes for 102 yards.
