LOOK: The face shield the NFL will use to combat coronavirus

Today, the NFL unveiled one of the tools it will use to combat the coronavirus. The Oakley Mouth Shield was designed especially to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 and will be distributed to all 32 teams this week for testing. The shield attaches to the face guard of the helmet, and even though there are openings for breathability, prevents droplets from escaping.

Here’s more from ESPN:

The Oakley Prizm Lens Technology used by skiers, military personnel and, most recently, NFL players for enhanced color and contrast in their visors is featured in the new design. Plastic sheets extend down and attach to the face guard. There are airways and openings on the mouth shield but none that allow the direct transmission of droplets, according to the chair of the NFL’s engineering committee, Dr. Jeff Crandall.

The shield was developed with feedback from players in mind and has shown “significant blockage” of droplets during laboratory testing.

If the shield works, hopefully a version of it will be available to college teams. Today, Division I teams were allowed to begin strength workouts and film study with coaches. Florida State shared this video of players and coaches wearing masks and face shields during their training session:

Who’s down with PPE? Every last homie.

    What is most important is they practice socially distant anthem kneeling. And, Black Marxists Matter fist pumps.

      The Russian bounty has been debunked many times. Maybe if your God Obama hasn’t paid all the money to Iran and gave so much uranium to Russia we wouldn’t be in this mess

      Dear lizard brain, the only people debunking the Russian bounty story are Russians, RW conspiracy sites, MAGAmorons and other assorted ignoramuses.
      How many of those boxes do you check?

    Funny how now the Native Americans want the redskins to change name to honor Indians and blacks want to name it in honor of them.

    How about call them what they are

      It’s not the native Americans that want this so bad. It’s just another group of people with too much time on their hands telling people how they should feel and what the should think.

    Police kill more whites per year then blacks, almost 2-1 but you’ll NEVER hear the anti American liberal media report these FACTS

    Black Lies Matter is nothing more then an anti America racist terrorist group who want to burn down America and rebuild it in their eyes. Giving the black community and black community only the right to break any law they want commit any crime they want without fear or being shot or prosecuted. If you support this racist group, you deserve everything that happens to you.

      Ok, so if blacks are 10% of the population and whites are 60%, so stay with me, that is six times whites more than blacks. So if whites are killed anything less than 6 times blacks, then blacks are getting killed disproportionately. But I wouldn’t expect a willfully ignorant mush brain to have the intellectual curiosity to look for the truth, so you control do you because you do it well.

      Ok that’s fine but 52% of murders in America were committed by African Americans. So by your logic those numbers are outrageous compared to the percentage of African Americans that make up the US

    The NFL is trying to make things safer. May or may not work, but at least they’re being proactive. I think it’s a good move.

    Empty NFL stadiums will continue. Only the woketards and ghetto rats will attend.
