NFL reportedly has no plans to implement playoff bubble

Yardbarker

The idea of holding the NFL playoffs in a bubble is one that has been discussed more as positive coronavirus cases keep popping up, but there has been no indication that the league is seriously considering it.

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, chief medical officer Dr. Allen Sills and executive vice president of football operations Trey Vincent took part in a conference call on Tuesday and touched on the subject of a bubble playoff environment. As of now, there is not much support for the idea. One reason is that officials feel an outbreak inside a bubble would be disastrous. Another is that they fear what the psychological ramifications would be if players have to be away from their families for the holidays.
