Several teams had already announced plans to make masks mandatory.
The New York Jets and New York Giants said earlier this week that they won’t have any fans this season at MetLife Stadium. The Philadelphia Eagles made the same announcement last week about Lincoln Financial Field.
Teams like the Green Bay Packers, Los Angeles Rams, Atlanta Falcons and Pittsburgh Steelers are hoping to have a limited number of fans at 2020 games.
