The Dallas Cowboys placed several stars on the Reserve/COVID-19 roster over the last few days.
Micah Parsons (star linebacker) was one of them. He will not be able to attend Saturday’s match against the Philadelphia Eagles. Parsons attended a Dallas Mavericks match earlier in the week. Parsons was tested positive for the virus just a few days later.
It’s Amari Cooper, though, that could be facing punishment from the NFL. He also attended a game with wide receiver CeeDee Lamb and was allegedly not wearing a mask.
Clarence Hill reports that Cooper could face a fine from the NFL for violating COVID protocols.
“According to the NFL’s 2021 regular season protocols, “A player who is not fully vaccinated is prohibited from attending a professional sporting event and unless he is seated in a separated seating section, such as a suite or owner’s box, is wearing PPE, and there are no more than 10 people in that separate seating section.”
A violator can be fined $14,650. Per an NFL spokesman, Cooper falls into that category but declined to comment on whether he will be fined.
It is unclear whether the NFL will follow Cooper’s decision to not wear a mask during the NBA game.
