NFL suspends three players, including Antonio Brown of Bucs, for violating Covid-19 protocols


In a thursday Press release, the NFL said its review of recent allegations that the players had “distorted their immunization status” had substantiated the claims.
On November 18, the NFL announced that it was reviewing accusations that Brown possessed fake Covid-19 vaccination cards in an attempt to spoof NFL protocols. The charges were brought by Steven Ruiz, Brown’s former home chef in a Tampa Bay weather exclusive report.

All three players have accepted discipline and fines and will not appeal the decision, the NFL statement said.

The NFL has determined that Rodgers and Lazard attended a Halloween party despite not being vaccinated, a violation of protocols prohibiting unvaccinated players from congregating outside of team facilities in a group of more than three players.

The Buccaneers released a declaration On Thursday, stating: “We appreciate the prompt handling of this matter by the League and recognize the importance of the health and safety protocols that have been established. We will continue to implement all of the League’s COVID-19 protocols.”

Brown’s attorney, Sean Burstyn, told CNN: “Mr. Brown is vaccinated and continues to support the vaccine for anyone for whom it is appropriate. The NFL has made up its mind and, instead of going through the process long and distracting to dispute the result, Mr. Brown concluded this quickly and he will use the time to treat his ankle injury.

“Mr. Brown will be motivated, well rested and in the best shape of his life when he returns in week 16.”
