The Detroit Lions were ravaged by the flu going through their dressing room last week, at one point missing 22 players and also having to take the field on Sunday against the Denver Broncos severely shorthanded.

Head coach Dan Campbell spoke to media members this afternoon while wearing a facemark, and provided an update on what his team is doing to mitigate the risk of further infections as the cases of COVID-19 around the NFL continue to rise.

“There’s concern, but there’s nothing we can do,” he said. “We’re doing all we can do to prepare for a game. We do the best we can, and we’re trying to keep our guys as safe as possible but also prepare. We’re trying to be as smart as we can about it.”

“You’re asking the wrong guy, I have no control over this. I’m sure there’s a better way, but we’ll keep working through it and the League will, and we’ll figure it out. But in the meantime, we have to go by what we’re told to do.”

Campbell then declined to specifically answer whether or not all of the players who have been on Detroit’s COVID-19 list are vaccinated, though he did say “a high number” of them are.
