Coaching staffs can return to team facilities beginning Friday

Bills coaches allowed to return to facility on Friday

"This may occur only if your club has otherwise received necessary permission from state and local governments to reopen its facility", the memo began. Some teams may have space issues with their current practice facilities, so they will have to get creative to fit an entire 90-man roster in a practice facility normally meant for walkthroughs in the regular season. The County has applied for a modified Phase 1 of the Safe Start plan that would allow for limited openings of more business, and which would likely clear the way for the Seahawks to have coaches return to their facility. However, while Sean McDermott & Co. are allowed back in the door at One Bills Drive per the new rules, players are not.

Players not seeking treatment for injuries are still barred from working at team facilities. "As stated in my memo of May 28, members of the coaching staff will count toward the maximum number of permissible club employees in the facility".

The league further noted that teams can have up to 100 people in their facilities at any one time (subject to state and local regulations, of course). The Vikings held joint practices twice in Mike Zimmer's tenure as head coach, once with Cincinnati and once with the Jacksonville Jaguars.


While most of the sports world has been at a standstill during the coronavirus pandemic, the National Football League has been able to operate business as usual, with some notable changes. Some teams had hoped an agreement could be reached with the NFL Players Association to open facilities to players in some fashion by mid to late June.

Rapoport reported on the NFL Network Friday that there remains some thought that players will be allowed back in buildings before the end of the of the offseason program even if on-field work is not allowed. Seattle's first preseason game is August 13 against the Las Vegas Raiders at CenturyLink Field and teams can open training camps 15 days prior to their first game.
