Mb Nfl Double Your First Deposit Football Team Vs Bucs Pewter 728x90 Jpg

Just two days ahead of training camp, the Bucs have placed starting safety Jordan Whitehead on the COVID/reserve list. The move leaves them thin at safety, after Curtis Riley was waived yesterday with a torn Achilles. The veteran safety reverted to injured reserve after clearing waivers.

Whitehead started all 20 games for the Bucs in 2020, finishing the season playing 83 percent of the team’s defensive snaps. In his best pro campaign, Whitehead added 74 tackles, two sacks, two interceptions and nine tackles-for-loss. The fourth-year safety shouldn’t be in danger of missing more than a couple weeks of practice, although it is unclear when Whitehead will be allowed to return to the facility.

The Bucs now have two open spots to fill for their 90-man roster. Training camp begins on Sunday, with the team’s first preseason tilt scheduled for August 14 against Cincinnati.

This new reserve list category was created last season for players who either test positive for COVID-19 or who have been quarantined after having been in close contact with an infected person or persons. If a player falls into either of these categories, his club is required to immediately place the player on the reserve/COVID-19 list. Per agreed upon NFL-NFLPA policy, clubs are not permitted to comment on player’s medical status other than referring to roster status. Clubs may not disclose whether player is in quarantine or is positive for COVID-19.

NFL please stop beating around the bush and making crazy rules for unvaccinated players. Just require the vaccine already. Businesses and companies are allowed to require vaccination, and its time for the NFL to do it.

No, we don’t need vaccine shoved down our throats thank you for speaking for everyone though jackass. You can get Covid with vaccine too. Do some research.

It is true that you can get it even after being vaccinated…but if you do the chances of hospitalization or death are almost non-existent. And Vaccines aren’t shoved down your throat. Someone doesn’t want it, don’t work or travel in ways and businesses that require it. They need to just man up and accept the fact that companies have the right to run their businesses as they choose.

You can get polio, tetanus, measles. Hep A, Hep B, Rubella, Hib, whooping cough, pneumococcal, rotavirus, mumps, chicken pox and diphtheria after being vaccinated for them as well but that didn’t stop you from getting those shots. The vaccines are what eradicated most of these and they are the only hope of eradicating or getting control of covid. Modern medicine has its downsides but vaccines are certainly one of the bright spots. And I’m sure this isn’t going to change your mind Fredster. It’s fine, we can agree to disagree. Go Bucs! At least we can agree on that.

All those you mentioned are actual vaccines, and all FDA tested and approved.

This one is experimental gene therapy that even the inventor of mRNA technology has stated should be immediately pulled from the market until extensive studies show efficacy & safety.

PolitiFact | mRNA COVID-19 vaccines were tested in humans, have proven to be safe, effective

We are in the #1 state for Covid presently. And our Governor doesn’t even post the Covid stats daily any longer. The NFL is doing the right thing. Every Bucs player needs to be vaccinated. And yes you can still get infected, but you won’t die from it, and likely will not spread it either. Don’t listen to Tucker Carlson. Get Vaccinated now.

Should you be vaccinated if you have had Covid? JMO the answer is NO! because natural immunity is better than vaccination based on history of communicable diseases of the past.

Wrong…read a little news…it isn’t a live or weaken virus based vaccine. Pfizer and Moderna are mRNA technology, and almost all the medical and vaccine experts say that the vaccine is more effective than immunity from having the disease. But why look it up, when you can instead rely on 19th century medical truisms?

Did he test positive or was he just in contact with someone. Makes big difference in how long he could be gone.

The fact that we don’t know if he’s been vaccinated or not, we only know that he’s in protocol, which can happen mingling with anyone. Vaccines work, we need them, and if people don’t pay attention, this thing WILL mutate as it already has done in Delta Variant and it could get worse…so make the right choice, do it for everyone in this bubble!

Even Mitch McConnell, Sean Hannity, Steve Doocy and others on Fox are now encouraging people to get the vaccine. They know if we allow it to have its way, it could result in economic hardship and disruption. And our economy can’t take that.

So once again, sadly we stop talking about football and turn the conversation to the politically charged pandemic. It should have zero to do with one’s political affiliation. But nowadays the goal seems to be to divide the country on virtually everything that becomes the “outrage dujour”. Me, I had mine and I think folks should get the shot, if and only if, it’s their choice to do so. As I recall, the vaccine development was being scoffed at as if Trump himself was brewing it up in the basement of the White House. Then came the election and the… Read more »
