Does it? I’m pretty sure the official rules are that if you are a close contact, you must isolate until you get a negative test. Again, I don’t think he is vaccinated, but jumping to assumptions is unwise

I think it is 2 tests but might be wrong

This is brilliant actually, that frees up 3 spots on the 53 to stash a couple guys that will eventually take TY's and Ehrlinger's spots when they put them on IR to return!  They can lift them from the COVID list next Monday and all is well....

The covid players are still on the 53.

One of the colture guys has a good point. This close contact thing is dumb because these players go every where and you never know who they come in contact with.

Keefer reported it. Let me go find it.

 

Still no source on this?

So Kelly either lied to Keefer... or Keefer is lying... or... most probably Kelly has been vaccinated but very recently and they still don't count him as fully vaccinated.

Except Chloe is right. Close contacts go on COVID list if they are not vaccinated. Vaccinated players don't... unless I'm completely mistaken but I think I'm not. Those freaking rules are a pain to remember... 

 

I was just going through the protocol, and it's very confusing. I'll need some time to get it straight in my head. Up to this point, I haven't been very interested in trying to figure it out, but I'll be digging in at some point soon since the season is about to start.

I saw something regarding the official rules just yesterday when I was reading about Nelson’s placement on the list, but when I looked again just now no dice...if I find it I’ll try to link it here

If you have something easier to digest, please post it.

This seems like a good summary, unless it's been changed since then:

Not the entire rule set, but a valuable chunk of it from PFT:

 

“Vaccinated players do not have to isolate after close contact with someone who tests positive, but unvaccinated players must remain away from the team for a minimum of five days. Vaccinated players who test positive for COVID-19 can return after consecutive negative tests 24 hours apart.”

Keefer now reporting his sources are telling him Kelly is NOT vaccinated. So he did lie to him? Or only has gotten one shot? 

Not everything is a lie there can be an honest miscommunication.

Another example of why people should take their time on these topics...

Mine says the same.

This thread requires that every comment is approved by a mod before posting. Threads around Covid have proven to derail easily from the actual topic at hand and also end up containing quite a bit of disinformation. It ends up impossible to keep up with moderation on the topic if we don't do this.

I get the same cautionary note.     As Shive has noted, it's to try and help prevent a small fire from turning into an out of control raging fire.     I can't find fault for that idea.      I think it's a fair to all approach.

 

These are incredible times we are living in.....

IMO the most likely case is that he's either in the process of getting vaccinated(only has gotten one vaccine) or has been doubly vaccinated but 2 weeks have not passed since his second vaccine and the league doesn't count him as 'fully vaccinated' yet. 

 

I doubt he straight up lied to Keefer, but who knows... people do and say the weirdest stuff around those vaccines.

Or keefer misunderstood something he said who knows.  Any of what you said or I said could be true.  We just don’t know.

    • Congratulations….   You found the one poster who regularly buys into Conspiracy Theories.   He’s your best audience for this.   There are a few other who might put their toe in the conspiracy theory water….   But otherwise,  people aren’t buying what you’re selling.    Good luck. 
    • I don't love our defensive scheme, but any defense is going to get gassed when the offense and special teams keep giving up turnovers giving the opposing offense extra possessions and short fields.
    • Defense isn't losing us games. Shutting teams out isn't something defenses do. They make periodic stops to give tour offense the chance to score. 4 turnovers lost this game. 4 drives that could have been points. 4 chances at the endzpme squandered.    This loss is on the offense. 
    • Defense win games, we can score, but Flus need to get his act together and do more blitzes and pressure the QB like crazy, if we have any hopes at all in getting to the playoffs.  Once you're in, anything can happen from there...
    • some people are getting stuck on the wrong things to avoid having to admit that Reich was a big part of the TB loss.  for all the bashing of the defense, they played very well in the first half, limiting Brady and the bucs to 14 points.  it wasn't until the offense and special teams started turning the ball over that they started giving up points in bunches.  And the last drive of the game was very disappointing, but how many defenses has tom brady done that too?  not to mention, unlike reich, arians and brady kept sprinkling in the run to further wear down the colts defense, that was already getting gassed from having to defend short fields and extra TB possessions after Colt turnovers.
