When do NFL training camps start in 2020? League tells players when to report

Sporting News logo Sporting News 2020-07-18

The NFL told its 32 teams on Saturday that training camps can start on schedule in the coming week.

NFL Media's Tom Pelissero added that teams are still taking additional health protocols. Pelissero says "only 20 players would be allowed in the facility at a time, until the NFLPA signs off on infectious disease emergency response plans for each club. If protocols aren't met, a grievance could follow. But clubs have the right to set reporting dates within CBA rules."

  • Quarterbacks and injured players: July 23
  • All other players: July 28

NFL training camp news

Reigning Super Bowl champions the Kansas City Chiefs, along with the Houston Texans, have been granted permission to start camp earlier because they kick off the season on September 10, three days before other teams are in action. Rookies for both those teams will report on Monday, NFL Media said.

Even with camps set to open, discussions are ongoing between the NFL and NFL Players Association (NFLPA) regarding health and player safety protocols amid the coronavirus pandemic.

One of the biggest requests from the NFLPA is daily player testing for COVID-19 as opposed to every other day. The NFLPA said on Thursday that 72 players were known to have tested positive, as of July 10.
