Report: New York Giants players may have violated NFL safety protocols

The Giants could be in trouble from the NFL soon.

As if having a pedestrian 1-6 record wasn’t bad enough, the New York Giants may now be facing some stiff penalties from the NFL.

The League is looking into a report of several players on the team, including Daniel Jones and Saquon Barkley, out and about in New York City without wearing face masks.

“We are aware of the video that was posted,” the Giants said in a statement Saturday. “We are looking into the nature and context of what is on the video.”

The NFL and NFL Players Association banned player gatherings outside of designated team facilities.

MHSAA makes decision on start date of high school winter sports

The Michigan High School Athletic Association has officially decided that winter sports will start as scheduled later this year.

Among the required guidelines will be mandatory facemarks for all participants in basketball, competitive cheer, ice hockey and wrestling at all times. However, scrimmages are still prohibited. The only time that students from different schools may gather together will be for official games and and competitions.

MHSAA Executive Director Mark Uyl announced that while high school sports would start on time, the importance in remaining diligent to stop the spread of the virus remains a top priority.

“The Council believes it is safer to begin Winter practices on time, and keep athletes in school programs where safety precautions are always in effect,” Uyl said. “With the vastly different circumstances faced by schools in different regions all over the state, an on-time start still allows schools to decide when they feel most comfortable beginning activity – and allows all of them to slowly ramp up their frequency of activity and numbers of spectators attending competitions.

“But let’s be clear: Our statewide COVID-19 numbers have to get better. In order for our schools to continue playing sports this winter, and in order for fans to be there to cheer them on, we must continue working to slow down this virus.”
