A hot topic in the NFL right now is the COVID-19 vaccine and how the NFL plans to handle outbreaks this season among unvaccinated players.

There have been a lot of top players, like DeAndre Hopkins and Dak Prescott, that have voiced frustrations with the NFL because they do not want to take the vaccine.

However, it doesn’t appear that the Cincinnati Bengals are going to be having issues with that.

On Monday, Bengals president Mike Brown said that the Bengals are over 90% vaccinated and that the coaching staff is entirely vaccinated.

Going even further, Zach Taylor added that the Bengals have less than 10 players who haven’t had a shot, and that in two weeks, 10 more players will be considered fully vaccinated.

The 2021-22 season is right around the corner, and it appears that the Bengals are doing everything right as they look to avoid any COVID-19 issues that could have forced them to forfeit a game if players were unvaccinated.
