49ers can hold tryouts after NFL lifts ban

Aug 12, 2020 at 6:27 AM--


The San Francisco 49ers, and every other NFL team, can finally hold tryouts with prospective additions to their rosters. The league informed teams on Tuesday that the ban on tryouts has been lifted, effective immediately, according to a report from NFL Media.

Tryouts were prohibited due to health concerns surrounding the coronavirus pandemic. NFL teams were only allowed to bring players in for physicals, and even that required multiple tests for COVID-19.

Players will still have to undergo testing, undergoing the process three times, with each returning negative before taking part in a workout. Players who were on an NFL roster within 24 hours will only have to undergo two tests.

The 49ers will now be allowed to host eight players for workouts per day. Still, personnel must continue adhering to health protocols, including wearing protective equipment and remaining six feet away from the player at all times.
