The NFL Players Association has instructed agents to talk to all of their clients about risk factors that could make them more susceptible to severe illness as a result of the coronavirus.
The scheduled start of training camps is inching closer. July 28 is the reporting date for most teams.
In a letter sent to agents Monday, the NFLPA wrote, "The NFLPA is directing you to provide each of your clients with important risk factor information provided by the Centers for Disease Control that appears below, and by mid-July, you must engage each of your clients in a conversation about the vital importance of carefully reviewing this information with their personal physician. They should ask their personal doctors any and all questions they have regarding these risk factors in light of their personal medical history and their job as an NFL player. They should also discuss any risk factors with their team doctor."
