The NFL and NFL Players Association have agreed to suspend daily COVID-19 testing for unvaccinated players, aligning them with protocols developed last month for vaccinated players and coaches.
Anyone who reports symptoms will be tested.
The NFL's most recent COVID-19 data release reported that 95% of players and nearly 100% of staff members are vaccinated. The change will apply to a small group of people.
There are approximately 12 unvaccinated players on the eight teams left in the playoffs, most notably Aaron Rodgers.
Rodgers had a 90 day testing exemption following his positive case that was set to expire soon.
