Michael Irvin attacks the Cowboys’ immunization rate for COVID-19.

With less than a week until the start of training camp, there are reportedly 13 NFL teams with over 85% of their players vaccinated against COVID-19, and one Hall of Famer is slamming his former team for not making the cut.
Former Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Michael Irvin lambasted his former team for failing to meet the vaccine threshold at a Texas event over the weekend, linking the absence of vaccines to a lack of commitment to winning a Super Bowl.
“Are you really thinking about winning a championship if you’re not one of those teams (at the threshold),” Irvin said, according to ESPN.
The exact percentage of vaccinated Cowboys players is unknown, while they are not one of the teams the Associated Press has identified as having less than 50% vaccinated players.
According to the Associated Press, the lowest vaccination rate is among the Indianapolis Colts and the Washington Football team, while the highest is among the Carolina Panthers, Denver Broncos, Pittsburgh Steelers, and Miami Dolphins.
Unvaccinated players will not be allowed to leave the team hotel or eat meals with teammates, according to safety regulations put in place by the NFL and the players’ union last month.
They’ll also have to put on masks and maintain social distance.
According to ESPN, the Cowboys will set up a testing lab at their training camp facilities to test unvaccinated athletes daily and vaccinated players weekly.
Irvin went on to say that vaccinated athletes should try to be their colleagues to get vaccinated as well, regardless of whose team they are on.
“Someone in that dang locker room should say, ‘Hey dude, we’re going to have a chance, are you vaccinated?'” stated Irvin.
“Let’s take a look at this because this might be a two-week healthy person missing games, and this isn’t the NBA.”
It could be it for you in this league.
The correct person is only absent for two weeks.
“Your a– has been kicked out.”
