NFL training camps are operating differently this year during the COVID-19 pandemic. Preparation for the season has changed. Teams did not have an offseason program. They also will not have preseason games. These things change the schedule.

The early days of camp were solely for players to report, get tested for COVID-19, take part in virtual meetings, take physicals, and receive equipment.

Testing will continue, but we have reached the “acclimation” period. This will run through August 11.

This will mainly consist of strength and conditioning. Players can be in the weight room for up to one hour and on the field for conditioning for up to one hour in groups of 15 or less. There can also be walkthroughs. Saturday is a mandatory day off.

This leads to the next phase where actual practices can begin starting August 12. Eventually teams will incorporate contact into the practices leading up to the start of the season.
