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

NBC 6 Weekend Football Preview: Spooky Time for NFL First Start
10/30/2020 8:45am

This weekend marks a special time for a certain section of the South Florida community. No, its not because its the end of October and the first day of what seems to be the 267th month in 2020and no, its not the extra hour of sleep we get Sunday morning.Its the time fans of the Miami Dolphins have been waiting for its Tua Tagovailoa time in South FloridaThats right, the Fins made the decision that at 3-3 on the seasonand sitting just a game and a half back in the AFC Eastnow is the perfect time to take the ball out of the hands of starting quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick and put it into the left hand of the rookie first round pick from Alabama.Some fans have been calling for it and everyone knew it was going to happen at some point. But Im pretty sure they didnt think it was going to come against one of the top defenses in the NFC and maybe the best defensive players in the entire NFL.With both the Miami Hurricanes and FIU Panthers taking the weekend offwell, FIU being asked to after COVID mayhemwell keep this quick as we break it all down with NBC 6s not-so-scientific ranking system.Photo by Scott Varley/Digital First Media/Torrance Daily Breeze via Getty ImagesMiami Dolphins vs. Los Angeles Rams SundayThe Dolphins are in a position that not a lot of people thought they would be in a .500 team who could have a legit shot of winning their division with several more winnable games coming by the end of November. Thus, there is some question why you make the change at quarterback right now.The move to Tagovailoa comes after a bye week following a shut out win over the rival Jets, a team they will see at the end of this month and who still might not have a win by then. After this week, Miami has three of their next four games against teams in the bottom half of their respective division.So, its the right timerightThe problem comes this week when the Dolphins face a Rams team coming to down with a 5-2 record and a defense that includes a physical freak in DT Aaron Donald and star defensive back and former FSU standout Jalen Ramsey. Thus, Tua Time could be a rude awakening for the most talked about quarterback in Miami since Dan Marino.Other State GamesThe No. 10 ranked Florida Gators are back in action after several weeks delay due to COVID issues with the team as they host Missouri. FAU is back at home for just the second time this season when they host Texas-San Antonio while St. Thomas is on the road when they take on Ave Maria.In the NFL, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers hit the road on Monday when Tom Brady and friends take their two game win streak into a matchup with the New York Giants.

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. The Tigers are scheduled to play No. 4 Notre Dame in South Bend, Indiana, on Nov. 7.Individuals who test positive for COVID-19 must isolate for a minimum of 10 days.Lawrence said in a statement on Twitter that his symptoms have been relatively mild and he was following protocol fron Clemson and the ACC about the virus.The only thing that hurts is missing an opportunity to be with my teammates this weekend and play the game I love, he said.Lawrence said hed be watching and cheering for the Tigers from isolation.The junior from Georgia is a leading contender for the Heisman Trophy and potentially the top overall pick in next years NFL draft. 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. Clemsons loss to LSU in the title game was the first and still only game the Tigers have lost in Lawrences 32 career starts.Clemson is tested three times a week per Atlantic Coast Conference protocol.Lawrence created a stir earlier this week when asked about his NFL future said he still had the option to stay or leave.My mindset has been that Im going to move on, Lawrence said Tuesday. 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. The Tigers also have used sophomore Taisun Phommachanh and Hunter Helms at quarterback this season.Clemson has won its past 27 games against ACC competition and the past nine against Boston College.This story uses functionality that may not work in our app. Click here to open the story in your web browser.

NHL Clears Ex-Panthers GM Tallon of Wrongdoing After Investigation
10/29/2020 6:32pm

The NHL on Thursday cleared Dale Tallon of any wrongdoing after an independent investigation found it could not substantiate claims he made inappropriate racial, religious and ethnic comments as general manager of the Florida Panthers. The league received an anonymous report in August of Tallon using racially derogatory language while in the Toronto playoff bubble and had in the past made openly racial, religious and ethnic comments. That day, it hired Seyfarth Shaw LLP to conduct an investigation and said among other steps the law firm interviewed more than a dozen Panthers employees and reviewed all information about the case.The NHL said that investigation showed the allegations were neither corroborated nor substantiated and are inconsistent with Tallons past actions and his affirmative efforts in support of diversity and inclusion initiatives. After Akim Aliu last year said he was the victim of racist comments from coach Bill Peters during their time together in the minors, the NHL took steps to improve the reporting of such instances. That included a way for players, coaches and other staff to anonymously report behavior that would go against league policy and protocols.The NHL found Tallon did not violate any of those.Florida moved on from Tallon after 10 years following its loss in the qualifying round of the expanded Stanley Cup playoffs. The team hired longtime agent-turned Columbus Blue Jackets assistant GM as Tallons replacement.The Panthers also did not retain assistant coach Mike Kitchen, following a report he kicked a player on the bench during a game last season. Kitchen, 64, opted out of the playoffs, and deputy commissioner Bill Daly said late last month the team investigated that situation internally and came to its own decision without league intervention.Tallon has been linked to a possible job in the Pittsburgh Penguins front office after they fired assistant GM Jason Karmanos this week. Tallon did not immediately respond to a message seeking comment on the NHLs investigation.
