Sweat said on Wednesday that he is “not a fan” of the team and NFL trying to persuade players to get vaccinated. He said he does not feel enough information is known yet about the vaccines.
“I haven’t caught COVID yet. I don’t see me treating COVID until I actually get COVID,” Sweat said, via The Canadian Press.
Washington brought in Harvard immunologist Kizzmekia S. Corbett to speak with players about the COVID-19 vaccines on Tuesday night. Head coach Ron Rivera also encouraged players and staff to get their shots.
