The NFL’s official Twitter account has taken a stance on the issue, saying, “NFL Players have been asked by the NFLPA to refrain from smoking and/or vaping in the future.
We understand the NFL has a lot of different health issues to address.
We will continue to listen and understand their concerns.
We are a diverse and inclusive organization, and we welcome our players to participate in the League.”
This statement from the NFL came just one day after the league issued an updated policy that states smoking in public places is not allowed, even for recreational purposes.
NFL Players have also been banned from the practice field after the National Football League Players Association announced a policy banning them from the game, including at halftime of games.
The NFLPA announced a new policy banning players from participating in pre-game practices, halftime shows and the post-game ceremony at halftime.
They have also stated that all players must wear a “mask,” a uniform or an electronic device when in public.
The policy will not affect the number of players on the field at halftime, or whether they are on the bench.
The league will be taking a wait and see approach until the policy is fully implemented.
