Two former members of the Detroit Lions went head to head on Thursday night. One got the last laugh on the field, but the other got the last laugh on social media.
Darius Slay‘s Philadelphia Eagles defeated Golden Tate‘s New York Giants at Lincoln Financial Field on Thursday night.
Not shy about using his social media to voice his feelings, Tate celebrate the victory on his Twitter account shortly afterwards. It wasn’t long before his former teammate came knocking:
Las Vegas Raiders send several players home for isolation
The NFL has announced the rescheduling of two of their Week 7 matchups thanks to complications from COVID-19.
Following the positive testing of right tackle Trent Brown, the entire offensive line for the Las Vegas Raiders has been sent home for isolation after contact tracing connected them to Brown.
The NFL announced they’re now investigating Brown, who hadn’t been consistently wearing the mandated tracking device.
“I guess they were around Trent,” Gruden said in a video call with reporters. “I can’t get into things any more than that. But hopefully we’ll get some players back tomorrow, or for Sunday.”
Head coach Jon Gruden was among the coaches that were fined by the NFL earlier this season due to failure to adhere to the safety guidelines.
“How happy am I? I’m not happy,” Gruden said. “I’m concerned. I’m really more concerned about Trent [and] his health than anything. This is COVID and I am concerned about anybody that has it or is near it.”
