Jaguars coach Urban Meyer said the player’s vaccination was “necessary” as his team cut a list of 53 players on Tuesday, prompting the NFLPA to investigate its investigation.
In particular, Meyer said this puts a strain on his decision as well as Trent Baalke’s senior because of the strict COVID-19 rules on non-vaccinated players, according to the NFL:
“Everyone was considered,” Meyer said.via ESPN). “That was part of the production (like), let’s start talking about this, and he got vaccinated or not? Can I say he was a decision maker?
The NFL does not want players to be vaccinated, which is probably why the club started questioning Meyer’s comments. Vaccinated players should follow more dry methods than they are, including controlled masks in heavy rooms and events, daily testing and no more than 10 days after proper testing.
The League also informed its clubs that if the game could not be rescheduled for 18 weeks due to the spread of COVID-19 among non-vaccinated players, the team that exploded could be rescued and declared lost, according to a report by Kevin Patra Around the NFL.
Shortly after Meyer discussed his final draft, the NFLPA approached ProFootballFocus to review its comments:
NFLPA’s comment to PFT on Jaguars coach Urban Meyer admitting he had the vaccine is what led to the decline: “These comments have led us to investigate.”

One of Jacksonville’s biggest surprises was defender Jarrod Wilson, who always wore a mask inside the team, according to ProFootballTalk. Meyer said the Jaguars “still have a discussion” on how to bring in Wilson, either through their 16 remaining ballots or through the NFL wire, which is much needed.
“It’s like a free thing for the vet you’ll see,” Meyer said of the reception wire. “Because they are not suspended – they also want freedom. But young players, it is happening right now as we speak.”
Tom Pelissero of the NFL Network said Monday that the NFL had increased its testing of players with full immunizations every week. Vaccinated players may not be considered dangerous, although they may be tested daily for up to five days.
According to ESPN, Meyer said the team tried to educate its players about the vaccine and encourage them to accept it, but that everyone is allowed to choose for themselves if they can get them. It seems that he is showing that the team’s chances of success, can be attributed to the strong points of the league, which protected Josh Allen in the team’s last two games despite not having a coronavirus.
“I don’t know if I’m allowed to say this, but they have never had COVID,” Meyer said. “That’s good discipline.”
