NFL to require fans wear masks at games -- if there are fans at games

Jul 22, 2020 at 1:48 PM--


NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy announced today that the league would require fans in attendance this season to wear face coverings to prevent the further spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus). Of course, that is if there are any fans in attendance.


The coronavirus pandemic shows no signs of slowing, so fans may not be allowed in NFL stadiums when the league kicks off its regular-season slate of games. Philadelphia officials announced that fans wouldn't be allowed at Eagles games, while both New York teams announced that they would not have fans in attendance. Others cling to hope that they can at least host a limited number of fans.

Several teams had already announced that, should fans be allowed, they will be required to wear face coverings. The NFL's announcement makes the mandate official across the league.

The San Francisco 49ers are scheduled to open the regular season against the Arizona Cardinals on September 13 at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara. They will then travel to the East Coast to face the two New York teams, which, as mentioned, aren't allowing fans, in back-to-back games.

'Nothing there' between 49ers, Clay Matthews, says Barrows

First, there have been zero reports that the San Francisco 49ers are interested in former Green Bay Packers and Los Angeles Rams linebacker Clay Matthews. I cannot stress that enough. Still, with the team's ever-increasing number of injuries, Matthews' name does come up often from fans who feel he could help offset some of the Niners' losses. In just two weeks, the 49ers defensive line has taken a significant hit. Ronald Blair (knee) and Jullian Taylor (knee) started the season on the physically-unable-to-perform (PUP) list. Then, on Sunday, San Francisco lost Nick Bosa and Solomon Thomas to season-ending ACL injuries. No one seems to know when Dee Ford (back) will return to

The San Francisco 49ers have announced that the team has placed Deebo Samuel on injured reserve. The move will force the second-year wide receiver to miss at least three games under the NFL's new injured-reserve rules, meaning the earliest he would be available is for Week 4 against the Philadelphia Eagles. Samuel has not practiced with the team since suffering a Jones fracture in June. Head coach Kyle Shanahan had hoped that the receiver would be available for the team's Week 1 matchup against the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday, but the 49ers never cleared Samuel to practice this week. Shanahan was asked on Friday why San Francisco had not yet placed Samuel on injured reserve. "Because we believed he had a good chance to play this week," Shanahan
