The NFL is still planning to open the season on time despite the rising rate of COVID-19 cases in some parts of the United States.

In addition, the Miami Dolphins are still optimistic they'll have at least some fans at games this fall.

"We will be going to our fans saying if you are in any way at risk we don't think you should come, assuming we are going to be playing with some level of fans — which at this point may or may not happen," he said. "It's very uncertain. I am optimistic we will play with some fans and am hopeful about that. Assuming that's the case, we will recommend to fans who are any way at risk not to come. Our season-ticket holders can roll over money into next year. They will be able to roll over and keep their tenure."
