It becomes even more concerning with rookies scheduled to report to training camp on Saturday.

Texans defensive end J.J. Watt has joined hundreds of players on four calls with the NFLPA in the last two weeks, and they still don't have "a single valid" Infections Disease Emergency Response plan, he said Thursday on Twitter.

"We don't know if there are preseason games or not. We don't know if there will be daily testing, semi-daily testing, etc. We don't know how a  potential Covid test would affect contracts, roster spots, etc. Nothing has been agreed upon regarding what training camp will actually look like and how the 'ramp up' period will work."

Watt reiterated that players want to play, but these questions remain unanswered.

An NFL proposal sent to the NFLPA Tuesday night included two preseason games, but the union does not want any preseason games and has called for daily COVID-19 testing.

The union also wants for positive COVID-19 tests to be classified as a non-football injury.
