NFL’s Only Physician Player Opts Out of 2020 Season Over COVID

Quote:
Laurent Duvernay-Tardif, MD, the only medical doctor on a current NFL roster, has become the first player to opt out of the 2020 NFL season, citing concerns over risk for COVID-19.

Canadian-born Duvernay-Tardif, right guard for the Kansas City Chiefs, announced on Twitter Friday what he called "one of the most difficult decisions I have had to make in my life."

"There is no doubt in my mind the Chiefs' medical staff have put together a strong plan to minimize the health risks associated with COVID-19, but some risks will remain," he posted.

"Being at the frontline during this offseason has given me a different perspective on this pandemic and the stress it puts on individuals and our healthcare system. I cannot allow myself to potentially transmit the virus in our communities simply to play the sport that I love. If I am to take risks, I will do it caring for patients."

Not exactly. The NCAA has canceled all championships but individual schools may still play.

Will many of them do that?

And if the NCAA cancels Div I championships, incl football, how many schools will play? I don't see the SEC schools, for example, cancelling football without someone strong-arming them.
