It’s official, sadly.
The NFL will not have a preseason this year after all.
NFL Network reports that the league and players’ union have agreed to not hold a preseason this fall.
It would have gotten underway next month.
That decision comes with the likelihood of teams playing in front of a limited number of fans – or even none at all – during the regular season.
The league has also announced that if fans are allowed to attend in person, they will be required to wear face coverings.

Some teams and stadiums have already announced mask policies, and now the policy will be league-wide.
