(WFLA/CNN Newsource) – The NFL has unveiled a new prototype mouth shield designed to reduce the spread of coronavirus.
Players are set to start testing it this week.
The Oakley-branded shield is placed behind the face mask.
It has off-set vents and a filter lined up directly in front of the mouth.
Combined with a visor, more detailed drawings show the entire face area being covered.
The league and the players’ union haven’t yet finalized health and safety protocols for the season.
