The Cowboys have run out of unvaccinated players who must follow the NFL’s stricter COVID-19 safety rules, as now every unvaccinated player has developed natural immunity to contracting COVID-19.
That’s the word of Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, who said this morning on 105.3 The Fan that the Cowboys are now “vaccinated or got the COVID” in 100 percent of players, according to Michael Gehlken of the Dallas Morning News.
While everyone should receive the COVID-19 vaccine, exposure to the virus also provides immunity, and as a result, the NFL allows unvaccinated players who have had COVID-19, such as Aaron Rodgers, for 90 days after a positive test forgo improved testing protocols.
Cowboys wide receiver Amari Cooper and linebacker Keanu Neal are believed to be the last two unvaccinated Cowboys players, and they have both tested positive this season. Neal is already back and Jones said the Cowboys expect Cooper to come back to play Thursday night.
