Unvaccinated NFL Players Will Be Fined More Than $14K for Violations of COVID Protocol
The NFL will be handing out $14,650 fines to unvaccinated players who violate the league's COVID-19 protocol.
This comes after the NFL on Thursday told teams that they would have to forfeit games if outbreaks among unvaccinated players results in them being unable to play.
NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said in a memo that in such situations, players from both teams would lose money, according to ESPN. He also said that he “retains the authority to impose additional sanctions, particularly if the Covid outbreak is reasonably determined to be the result of a failure by club personnel to follow applicable protocols.”
