When the NFL sends its players back onto the field for the 2020 season, there's a chance those players could be carrying a helmet specifically designed amid the coronavirus pandemic.
NFL Player's Association Medical Director Thom Mayer spoke on Adam Schefter's podcast and discussed the development of prototypes that include some form of surgical or N95 mask material to help limit the virus' spread on-field.
"They’re doing really good work. Some of them, when you first look at them you would think, ‘gosh’ because you’re not used to seeing it," Mayer said.
