Indianapolis Colts 202
Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

As the state of Indiana battles the COVID-19 pandemic, Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay is doing what he can to help those on the front lines of the fight.

Irsay announced Sunday morning that he has procured over 10,000 N-95 masks and is passing them along to the Indiana State Department of Health “for distribution as most urgently needed.”

The state of Indiana has seen a surge in positive cases recently, and as of Sunday morning there were 4,411 positive cases reported, with 127 total deaths due to complications from the novel coronavirus.

There is a national shortage of N-95 masks and other necessary equipment, so the effort by Irsay to supply the state with masks is certainly timely.
