While several NFL teams are still carrying on with business as usual, on Thursday the Washington Redskins became the third team in the league to officially ground their coaching and scouting staffs.
Washington tweeted out a brief statement credited to franchise owner Dan Snyder which said, “Due to health and travel concerns surrounding COVID-19 [the] Redskins have informed all coaches and scouts to suspend all travel until further notice.”
This is prime time for pro days on college campuses around the country, so Washington won’t have personnel at any that happen going forward.
On Wednesday, Yahoo Sports reported that the Pittsburgh Steelers and Philadelphia Eagles had grounded their coaching and scouting staffs for the same reason.
Yahoo Sports’ Charles Robinson reports that the NFL has canceled team visits by draft prospects and free agents, as well.
