We're all getting used to the new NFL guidelines on taking safety measures to prevent the spread and contraction of COVID-19 during the 2020 NFL season, and that certainly includes the league's players too.
Denver Broncos running back Melvin Gordon is just one of the many Broncos and New England Patriots players that recently learned they would not, in fact, be playing their Week 5 matchup this week at all.
While it may be hard to truly put yourselves in the shoes of an NFL player for a week of practice, it's not hard to level with the guy's disappointment and frustration over the postponement.
This Week 5 game was initially scheduled to be played Sunday, but was originally postponed to Monday night due to positive COVID-19 tests from the Patriots' camp, but it has now been completely removed from the Week 5 slate and rescheduled to the Week 6 slate instead.
