Howie Roseman says Eagles are over the 90% mark for players starting vaccination process

·1 min read

After months of speculation, we can put to rest any concerns about the Eagles and how many of their players are vaccinated enter training camp 2021.

During his presser following the first practice of the season, GM Howie Roseman confirmed that 90% of the team is either fully vaccinated or heading that way.

This comes on the heels of last Thursday’s memo from the NFL to all 32 teams, outlining the fact that the league will not add a 19th week to the regular-season schedule, and if a game is canceled due to an outbreak of unvaccinated players, that team would forfeit.

Even more important, neither team would be paid that week’s salary.

With the Eagles personnel doing their part, Philadelphia should be able to avoid a catastrophic COVID-related scenario this season.
