Heyward On 2020 Season: ‘We’ve Got To Make Sure That Every Player, Every Family Feels Safe Doing This’

The Pittsburgh Steelers are still scheduled to begin their annual training camp in less than a month on July 28. When and if that ultimately happens and happens on time, a solid plan and agreement will have to be in place between the NFL and the NFLPA that ensures that ongoing concerns related to the continued coronavirus pandemic are best prepared for. Ultimately, a few veteran players around the NFL might decide they don’t want to play in a pandemic environment, much like a few MLB players have already done.

Pittsburgh Steelers defensive tackle Cameron Heyward, however, let it be known during a Tuesday interview on the NFL Network that he currently has no plans to sit out the 2020 season due to pandemic concerns even though he might be a higher risk player due to him suffering from asthma.
