NFL anticipates only 49ers won’t be allowed into team facilities this week

Jun 4, 2020 at 9:07 AM--


As anticipated, a limited number of NFL coaches will begin re-entering their team facilities on Friday. The San Francisco 49ers are the only team not expected to do so, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.


The 49ers will continue conducting their offseason program virtually, as the rest of the league will continue doing. Other teams, however, will be able to do so out of their facilities while San Francisco coaches continue to work remotely due to local restrictions amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

As Rapoport states, the 49ers are supportive of the NFL's plan and have been in contact with local authorities to learn when they might be able to re-enter their Santa Clara-based facilities.

The NFL sent out the following memo on Thursday:

This will advise that, beginning tomorrow, June 5, coaching staffs may be among the employees returning to your facility. As has been emphasized in previous advice on reopening facilities, this may occur only if your club has otherwise received necessary permission from state and local governments to reopen its facility.

As stated in my memo of May 28, members of the coaching staff will count toward the maximum number of permissible club employees in the facility. Beginning tomorrow, clubs may increase the number of employees in the facility to a total of 100 subject again to state and local regulation and implementation of the protocols developed under the leadership of Dr. Sills.

Coaches and other football staff, particularly those who may be in a higher risk category or who have concerns about their own health conditions, are expected to speak with the club medical staff or personal physician about any special precautions or other accommodations that may be appropriate for their particular circumstances. In addition, we will work with club medical staffs to implement a program of Covid-19 testing for the coaching staff and other football personnel prior to players returning to club facilities.

Schefter: 49ers, NFL teams may only be allowed 75 to 80 players at training camp

Adam Schefter of ESPN is reporting that NFL teams may be required to limit the number of players who participate in training camps across the league when they begin later this month. At least, they are scheduled to start later this month. That would mean as many as 10 to 15 players from each team's 90-player roster might have to sit out meetings and on-field work. The idea is, of course, due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic as the NFL continues to search for ways to increase the safety of its players and the chances of an uninterrupted season. "One source said he believed it's likely that teams will go to camp with 80-man rosters," writes Schefter,

Around the NFL: What should Washington's new team name be?

Being a San Francisco 49ers site, we don't typically report on the happenings around the rest of the NFL that don't potentially impact the Bay Area team. This story, however, has been 87 years in the making. The NFL team representing Washington, D.C., may finally drop "Redskins" from its name, which has long been viewed as offensive. We live in a new world where awareness and compassion seem to be on the rise, and offensive icons like the Washington team name may be on the way out. The team's stadium sponsor, FedEx, this week requested a name change. "We have communicated to the team in Washington our request that they change the team name," FedEx said in a
