While the NFL is hoping the regular season won’t be impacted by the effects of the coronavirus, the sports world has come together to aid in ways they can. Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay is the latest franchise owner in sports to make a gesture toward the relief.
Irsay announced via Twitter that he obtained 10,000 N-95 masks and will be passing them along to the Indiana State Department of Health.
Sports organizations find themselves in a unique situation given their ability to help, especially when it comes to mass amounts of items that are necessary to help stop the spread of the disease.
Former Colts quarterback Peyton Manning teamed up with St. Elmo Steakhouse to provide 500 meals for the healthcare workers and first responders at the Peyton Manning Children’s Hospital.
The NFL will continue its offseason, albeit without a tradition draft, but they are still in wait-and-see mode when it comes to the regular season.
