COVID vaccination choices may be personal for Titans, but decisions could impact entire team

Only hours after the NFL and NFL Players’ Association announced new protocol modifications for vaccinated players earlier this week, Titans left tackle Taylor Lewan took to Twitter to air his disappointment.

    I can’t give you the exact words, since he has since deleted the tweet.

    But the outspoken Lewan made it clear he was not impressed by the leadership of an NFLPA that agreed to the changes, which considerably loosened restrictions on fully vaccinated players – as opposed to those who have not been vaccinated against COVID-19.

    Does that mean Lewan himself has chosen not to get vaccinated? We don’t know. Maybe he was complaining on behalf of Titans teammates who’ve opted against vaccination so far. Maybe he was simply venting concerns about the NFLPA’s leadership in general.

    But here’s what we do know: More than half a year after the first person in the United States was vaccinated, much of the country – and by extension the NFL – is dragging its heels when it comes to taking a needle in the arm.

    According to the Center for Disease Control data as of June 16, only about 44 percent of this country’s population had been completely vaccinated. And a full 20 percent of the United States categorized itself as “unwilling” to get the vaccine . . .
