The National Football League is expected to announce the cancellation of half of the preseason games scheduled for this summer in light of the rising COVID-19 breakout across the nation.
Games scheduled for Week 1 and Week 4 are likely to be canceled outright with teams playing one home and one away matchup over Week 2 and Week 3.
However, the NFL Players’s Association remains opposed to playing the exhibition games altogether and has discussed possible alternatives.
NFL.com’s Tom Pelissero has reported a proposed training camp schedule should the preseason games be scratched in 2020.
