Yesterday it was announced that the CDC has relaxed the Covid quarantine from 10 days to 5 days. There is no reason why the NFL and Player Union to reduce the 10 days rule to 5 days. If they test negative as of today they can be back by Sunday for the Raiders.  Another proactive idea by NFL/Colt management is to test for antigen (antibodies) to alert them how much protection they have going forward. ( My kids and grandkids tested positive and could not join us for Christmas. They have tested negative in a few days.)

Chris Mortenson reported they are working to change the rules quickly and changes are Imminant.

I have to imagine antigen testing is how future "vaccine cards" will work because they can't be forged.  That will also help avoid the misleading a la Aaron Rodgers.

Does anyone think that players that don’t have to be tested anymore are just going to be on the injury report as a illnsss or sent home a couple days without testing. Why test them if they are vaccinated or unvaccinated and already have had it and aren’t required to test. They will just say it’s a illnsss. They won’t test players with symptoms that aren’t required to test. They will just say ifs a illnsss.

This is interesting and kind of funny. The Dr For the NFL said that vaccinated players are volunteering for testing on Monday’s to limit a chance of them missing a game later in the week. 
 

Seems like positives are down now in the nfl with so many players not having to be tested due to positive cases.
