Barry Sanders, an NFL legend, contracts COVID but claims to be symptom-free.

Barry Sanders stated on Friday that he is the newest coronavirus breakthrough case.
Despite being properly vaccinated, wearing a mask, and taking other precautions, the Pro Football Hall of Famer says he tested positive with COVID-19.
GO TO FOXNEWS.COM FOR MORE SPORTS COVERAGE “Despite being double-vaccinated, wearing a mask, and taking all the measures I could…
COVID was found to be present in my system.
“I don’t have any symptoms, but I’m staying in till the doctors give me the all-clear,” he tweeted.
He stated that he would be ready for the Detroit Lions’ Week 9 matchup against the San Francisco 49ers.
Sanders, who turned 53 this month, spent ten seasons with the Lions between 1989 and 1998, retiring unexpectedly at the age of 30.

“We may be in the’red zone,’ but the war is far from finished.”

Falcons eliminated two unvaccinated players to reach a 100% COVID-19 vaccination percentage, according to reports.

The Atlanta Falcons made waves on Monday when they announced that all of their players have been vaccinated against COVID-19.
Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk provided an update on the subject on Thursday.
According to Florio, the Falcons eliminated two unvaccinated players as part of their recent roster cutting, bringing the team’s immunization percentage to 100%.
Since the spring, both the NFL and the NFL Players Association have stated that players cannot be forced to acquire coronavirus vaccines in order to preserve their roster positions, but it has been generally assumed for months that so-called “fringe” or “bubble” players may be cut during training camp and/or the preseason if they refused to get one of the available and safe vaccines.

For home games, the Las Vegas Raiders will demand spectators to show confirmation of Covid-19 vaccine.

The NFL’s Las Vegas Raiders stated Monday that fans will be required to provide confirmation of Covid-19 immunization in order to attend home games this season at their glittering new Allegiant Stadium. By Jill Martin, Kay Jones, and Eric Levenson, CNN
The immunization requirement will take effect on September 13, the day before the team’s first regular-season home game against the Baltimore Ravens on Monday night.
Fans will be able to attend home games without having to wear a mask as a result of this decision, according to the press release.
The policy on vaccines and no masks is the first of its type in the NFL.
The Raiders relocated to Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas last year, but due to the pandemic, no fans were allowed to attend games.
“Our number one priority has always been health and safety,” Raiders owner Mark Davis said in a statement.
“After consulting with Governor Sisolak and other community leaders, this policy ensures that we will be able to operate at full capacity for the entire season without masks for fully vaccinated fans,” says the new rule.
New measures for huge events in the state were announced by Steve Sisolak.
Any event with a capacity of 4,000 people or more can either compel all attendees to wear masks or provide masking exemptions to those who demonstrate proof of vaccination.
Indoors, he said, children under the age of 12 and those who are just partially vaccinated must still wear a mask.
“My goal with today’s new policy decision is to give the private sector additional options with a public benefit — the freedom to remove their mask during a concert or game if they’re completely vaccinated,” Sisolak said.
The vaccine mandate is the latest example of the NFL leveraging its enormous clout to promote Covid-19 vaccines, which offer excellent protection against infection and serious illness.
Those who have been inoculated have been given vast liberties, while those who have not been vaccinated are subjected to onerous limitations and continuous testing.
Furthermore, the NFL has stated that breakouts among unvaccinated players might result in forfeits and jeopardize a team’s playoff chances.
The incentives were effective.
The Atlanta Falcons became the first NFL team to get their entire roster immunized against Covid-19 on Monday, achieving a pristine 100% immunization rate.
The squad said on its website that “each player will now experience the perks of being able to work out and eat together.”
“They won’t have to test every day, they won’t have to wear masks throughout the facility, and they won’t have to quarantine after close contact with someone who tests positive,” the NFL told CNN last week.
According to the league, the lowest club had a 73% success rate.

The Atlanta Falcons are the first NFL club to achieve a vaccination rate of 100 percent.

The Atlanta Falcons are the first NFL team to achieve a 100% vaccination rate. The Atlanta Falcons have completed their team-wide COVID-19 vaccination. All of the Atlanta Falcons’ players have gotten the COVID-19 vaccine, making them the first NFL team to do so.
Because of their vaccination status, the players will not be subjected to daily testing and will not be required to wear masks while visiting the team’s facilities.
The COVID-19 immunizations have been a cause of dispute for some in the league, as a few of the league’s top players have resisted reporting their status publicly.
After navigating various scheduling changes last season to carry out its full slate of games, the Falcons will be able to field a full-strength line-up at their home Mercedes Benz Stadium during the next season. The NFL told teams last month that COVID-19 outbreaks among non-vaccinated players during the 2021 season might lead to forfeits and loss of pay if games cannot be rescheduled.
All NFL coaches, front-office executives, equipment managers, and scouts must be vaccinated.
The defending Super Bowl champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ head coach, Bruce Arians, told reporters earlier this month that he expects his team to be close to 100 percent vaccinated for their season opener against the Dallas Cowboys on September 9.
