The NFL has had more than 100 players put on the league’s coronavirus list.

According to Tom Pelissero, the league has had a total of 107 players put on the list, and 80 of them have already been activated again. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

Eighteen teams don’t have any players currently on the list. Being put on the list doesn’t mean a player has the virus, but it does mean they might have been in contact with somebody who was positive with coronavirus.

Overall, I think it’s safe to say that the NFL has done an outstanding job handling coronavirus. I think it’s more than fair to say that.

Sure, 107 players sounds like a very large number, the fact 80 of the players have already been activated again is a great sign.

The fact that more than half the league doesn’t have a single player on the list is also outstanding news for fans around the country.

If we want football to happen, rosters have to stay healthy. Right now, there’s not a single team in the NFL with a mass outbreak.

Things could obviously change, but as of right now, the NFL is doing a great job ensuring that the games happen as scheduled in September.
