NFL Chief Medical Officer Offers League Stance On Tom Brady’s Group Workouts

Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady has been leading some pretty serious group workouts with his new teammates before players start reporting to training camp.

Meanwhile, coronavirus cases reported in Florida have been on the rise, impacting even the Tampa Bay organization and forcing the NFL Players Association to advise against these group trainings, in effort to try and stop the spread of COVID-19.

Well, the NFL’s chief medical officer, Dr. Allen Sills, on Thursday was asked about the six-time Super Bowl champion holding workouts.  And he expressed support for the union’s current position.

“The NFL and NFLPA are in the same place,” Sills told reporters, via NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport. Sills, according to Rapoport, stressed the importance of “risk reduction and mitigating risk,” saying “players are going to share the same risk but also the same responsibility to each other.”

Well, if Brady’s Instagram stories are any indication, it doesn’t look like he’s afraid.
