According to the National Football League (NFL), 96 of its players tested positive for COVID-19 on Monday. There were an additional 10 positive tests among players over the weekend, bringing the total to 106 players on the league's Reserve/Covid-19 list since Christmas.
"We're entering a new phase of the pandemic, different than we've seen before," said the NFL's chief medical officer, Dr. Allen Sills. "We can't apply 2020 solutions to the 2021 problems we're having."
"At some point, you feel like you're fighting a ghost," Atlanta Falcons owner Arthur Blank said. "You don't know where to swing."
The NFL postponed three games last week, but has yet to cancel a game so far this season.
