(WKBW) — According to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero, the NFL and NFLPA are discussing the possibility of shortening the 2020 preseason.

Pelissero says nothing is final, or imminent, but multiple team executives informed of the talks believe teams could play two preseason games instead of four.

Pelissero notes shortening the preseason could allow for a longer "ramp-up" period as well as provide extra time for medical experts to finalize game day protocols.
