Union urges NFL to adopt daily COVID-19 testing for vaccinated players

  Union urges NFL to adopt daily COVID-19 testing for vaccinated players There’s a decent chance that the COVID-19 pandemic will play more of a role during the 2021 NFL season than last year. We’re seeing relaxed protocols from the league as it relates to fully vaccinated players with Week 1 of the campaign slated to get going Thursday evening. It has already led to some COVID-related issues for teams. That includes star guard Zack Martin and the Dallas Cowboys with their opener against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers mere days away. Despite being fully vaccinated, Martin tested positive for the virus and will miss the game.NFLPA president JC Tretter of the Cleveland Browns touched on this recently.

However bright Urban Meyer expected the spotlight to be on him when he took the job as head coach of the Jacksonville Jaguars, it probably feels even brighter at the moment. That’s especially true because his high-profile status and controversial stature don’t just invite interest in what he says and does but also onto his family.

Urban had to contend with rumors of discontent during the offseason, strong reactions to Jacksonville’s first game of the season, and speculations about how long he’ll stick around. His lack of availability has been called into question, asking fans to “hang in there” was met with derision, and even an off-hand admission about how tough the NFL is can become news.

Fact check: Pfizer, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines all passed animal testing

  Fact check: Pfizer, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines all passed animal testing Each of the three COVID-19 vaccines approved for use in the U.S. passed animal testing studies. Claims otherwise are false.Now some proponents of the anti-parasitic drug traditionally used for animals are falsely claiming COVID-19 vaccinations haven't passed animal studies.

One interesting tidbit that has been glossed over in recent weeks was the fact that Meyer admitted that he considered COVID vaccination status when he made cuts during the off-season.

“Everyone was considered,” Meyer said. “That was part of the [considerations such as] production, let’s start talking about this, and also is he vaccinated or not? Can I say that that was a decision-maker? It was certainly in consideration.”

That led to an NFLPA investigation to see if Meyer was overstepping a boundary. League rules prohibit teams from using vaccination status to inform their employment decisions.

Those comments became even more curious on Wednesday when the Twitterfeed of Shelley Meyer, Urban’s wife, gained attention for her anti-vaccine takes.

No, the Urban Meyer heart rumor is not true

  No, the Urban Meyer heart rumor is not true Two things were common for Meyer in college: victories and health issues.Meyer is in his first NFL season with the Jacksonville Jaguars. But his team’s bad Week 1 loss already has people talking.

As Comeback Media’s Ben Koo notes, Meyer is a registered nurse with a teaching position at Ohio State’s medical school.

Some might say that it’s none of our business what Shelley Meyer thinks of the COVID vaccine and it has no bearing on Urban or the Jaguars. However, as Slate contributor Alex Kirschner reminds us, Urban has included her in his dealing with the Jaguars as a kind of counselor and discipline guru.

As you can imagine, there have been some interesting reactions from the media world to these tweets.

It’s worth noting that this isn’t new information. Meyer’s stance on vaccines has been well-documented for a while on Twitter. It’s hard to believe the NFL won’t want to get involved at some point, especially given her involvement with the Jaguars.
