NFL TWEAKS COVID POLICY, LIFTS 62-PLAYER TRAVEL LIMIT

By Jack Ryan

The NFL has lifted the 62-player game travel limit, and instructed teams to keep facilities closed for the two days following games.

The NFL hopes that the change in protocol will help limit the spread of coronavirus throughout facilities following game days.

Clubs are permitted to determine the number of players they want to take to each road game. This includes taking practice squad players to ensure teams have greater flexibility when it comes to filling out the 48-man game day roster. That change becomes effective for Week 13.

Beginning Dec. 7, teams that played on Sunday must keep their facilities closed for two days. Teams that play on Monday cannot open their doors until Thursday, and squads that play Thursday night games must keep their headquarters closed on Friday and Saturday. All meetings must take place virtually. Coaches may access the facility to work independently in their own offices but cannot meet with one another in person.
