According to a report from Adam Schefter on Tuesday, the NFL has apparently told teams that they will all have to stay at their team facilities during this summer’s training camps.

This effectively answers any questions about whether or not teams would have been able to host joint practices or host their camps in venues outside of their home city. Teams that usually travel a bit for camp include the Bills, Colts, and Chiefs.
The lack of joint practices may end up being detrimental to the develop of rookies and other young players who usually take advantage of the opportunity to play against different players and unfamiliar schemes early on before the regular season. This year, the Rams would have likely split practices with the Chargers prior to the third preseason game in August.
It’s not substantial news, but it’s still a teeny-tiny baby step towards football happening as usual this fall.
