He didn't say today, just that it would be obvious on Sunday
Yes, but Ali and Bobby missed training so speculation focuses on them.
I see the Southampton vs. Newcastle game is already off. Of course ours will be played before a worldwide TV audience, so I suspect it will be hard to call it off. The other side of the "call it off" argument from our perspective is what will be happening when they try to replay it. There's no good answer really.
Over here (you know) they have updated the protocol on how long someone has to isolate, I believe because this variant is more contagious but not as severe in the illness caused - so the NFL and others have updated their response a bit, mainly in shortening the amount of time a player has to be out after a positive test (10 days to 5 days) if he's asymptomatic.
But as has been stated by UncleBob, there's a whole lot of random in which teams get a postponement and which have to play with a weaker team. Obviously it can end up impacting the table massively.
Just went to the funeral of my favorite uncle yesterday, who died of it (he was 88). Have I mentioned that I'm tired of the whole thing?
Would be nice to see our team play on Sunday, if possible.
