Before sports leagues can return, they must first instate a number of protocols to keep players and staff safe.

Especially the NFL, as public professionals have warned a second wave of the coronavirus may hit in the fall. In fact, Dr. Anthony Fauci, the director of the NIAID, is skeptical the NFL can start its upcoming season all together unless it’s played in a “bubble” environment like the NBA and NHL are planning.

The NFL doesn’t want to do that however.

So how will they keep players from contracting the virus when football is the definition of a contact sport?

According to Stadium, they might sport these wild-looking COVID-19 helmets:

These certainly look intimidating, like a street bike helmet crossed with a Stormtrooper or something. But, how practical are they? It doesn’t look like the full enclosure would make having full vision or communication very feasible.

Still, Twitter had some fun reactions to the possible helmets.

We’re not sure if the NFL actually will use these, but if so, we’ll be having some conversations about which uniforms look most menacing with them.
