The NFL is continuing to come down hard on unvaccinated players as a new memo released Thursday states that teams could potentially forfeit a game due to a COVID-19 outbreak amongst unvaccinated players.
Commissioner Roger Goodell said in the memo, obtained by The Associated Press, that the league does not intend to add another week to accommodate games that cannot be rescheduled due to an outbreak.
“As we learned last year, we can play a full season if we maintain a firm commitment to adhering to our health and safety protocols and to making needed adjustments in response to changing conditions,” he said.

The league’s updated policy for vaccinated persons back in June was met with harsh backlash by several players, most notably Buffalo Bills’ wide receiver Cole Beasley who said he would rather retire than get vaccinated. (Wesley Hitt/Getty Images)
Also, vaccinated players who come in contact with an infected person will not have to quarantine while unvaccinated players must enter a five-day quarantine.
“We know that vaccines are safe and effective and are the best step anyone can take to be safe from the coronavirus,” the memo reads.
