Per NFLPA medical director Thom Mayer, engineers are working n ways to incorporate surgical or N95 material into helmets. These could cover the entire face mask. On ESPN’s Adam Schefter’s podcast, Mayer said, “there will probably be a recommendation that the league uses a modified mask,” Mayer admitted. He has seen some of the prototypes, which are drastically different than what fans are used to seeing on players:

“They’ve got some prototypes. They’re doing really good work. Some of them, when you first look at them, you think, ‘Gosh, no’ ‘cause you’re not used to seeing it. You’re just not used to seeing it. But they’re looking at every issue you can imagine, including when it fogs up. What do we do with that? But these guys are used to dealing with this stuff.”

Face coverings are mandatory in several areas due to the coronavirus pandemic. If you don’t have anything to cover your face, now you can buy something San Francisco 49ers related as well as raise money for a good cause. These reusable face coverings are available in a three-pack that can be found below. Stay safe and do it while repping your team.

NOTE: The NFL and FOCO will support the CDC Foundation by donating all NFL proceeds from the sale of these licensed face coverings. The face coverings will ship no later than June 15.
