ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (WKBW) — Several members of the Buffalo Bills are joining other NFL players in calling out the NFL for what they say is a lack of a safety plan for players returning to training camp.
Players across the National Football League, including some prominent Buffalo Bills, are concerned about what safety measures will be in place amid the coronavirus pandemic.
If #AdamSilver can respect the voices and protect his @NBA players why can’t @NFLcommish do the same? Listen to your players. If we want to have a full season it will have to look different with OUR safety as the priority. @NFL make the necessary changes. #WeWantToPlay— DIGGS (@stefondiggs) July 19, 2020
If the NFL doesn’t do their part to keep players healthy there is no football in 2020. It’s that simple. #WeWantToPlay— Micah Hyde (@micah_hyde) July 19, 2020
The @NFL is doing what they always do. They’re waiting for the last minute so they can try to put public pressure on the players just so you fans know we’ve asked numberous questions and a lot of them were flat out ignored by the owners #WeWanttoPlay— Jonathan Feliciano (@MongoFeliciano) July 19, 2020
The concerns come as Bills' rookies will report to training camp on Tuesday in Orchard Park.
Quarterbacks and injured players are scheduled to appear on Thursday, and the whole team is expected to join them next week.
Training camp will be at the Bills home field this year, instead of Saint John Fisher College in Pittsford because of COVID-19.
