Mike Garafolo of NFL Media reports that members of the NFLPA voted on a conference call this week to not play any preseason games ahead of the 2020 regular season.
Garafolo says the NFLPA is still holding to its recommendation of zero preseason games this year.
According to Tom Pelissero, one possible training camp schedule the union has discussed includes:
- three days of medical/equipment
- 21 days of strength and conditioning
- 10 days of unpadded practice
- 14 days of practice (10 max, eight padded)
This would then lead into Week 1 of the regular season.
Reports from earlier in the week mentioned that the NFL is prepared to reduce preseason games to two and cut out Week 1 and Week 4.
Mark Maske says the NFL’s position up to this point has been that it will not budge from its two-game plan for the preseason.
NFL teams are expected to have players report for training camp on July 28.
