As NFL teams prepare for the 2020 NFL season, they’re looking for every way possible to increase player safety and reduce potential exposure to the coronavirus. On Monday, the Denver Broncos revealed a new method that they hope will combat the coronavirus.

While many organizations are relying on social distancing and redesigned locker room to reduce the chances of the virus spreading, Denver took things a step further. Before players hit the practice field for conditioning, they are put through a machine that sprays solution to help protect the players.

The solution is created by microSURE, which partnered with the Broncos to help decrease the risks of the coronavirus potentially spreading. It has been proven effective against most common germs, killing bacteria and viruses that include E.Coli and the coronavirus.

The Broncos have good reason to take this pandemic seriously. Star linebacker Von Miller battled with symptoms from the coronavirus for weeks and teammate Kareem Jackson also tested positive during the offseason.

Big things could be coming for NFL fans in Denver this season with the playoffs a real possibility. However, that will only happen if everyone stays healthy and the Broncos are doing whatever they can to make that happen.
