Buffalo Bills wide receiver Isaiah McKenzie revealed on Twitter that he’s been fined more than $14,000 for violating the NFL’s policy regarding masks. Well, it turns out he’s not the only player on the team who was fined this week.
Cole Beasley responded to McKenzie’s post on social media, revealing that he was also fined by the league. Judging by his latest tweet, it’s safe to say he doesn’t agree with the mask policy the NFL has implemented for this season.
“Don’t worry they got me too,” Beasley said. “But I was wearing a mask when I was in close contact with fully vaxxed trainer who tested positive and still got sent home. So what’s the point of the mask anyways? Meanwhile I’m here still testing negative and can’t come back. Make it make sense.”
Beasley was recently sent home by the NFL because he was deemed a close contact of a team trainer who tested positive for COVID-19.

As for the letter that McKenzie received, the NFL made it clear that unvaccinated players need to strictly follow safety protocols.
“For players who are not fully vaccinated against COVID-19, like you, your conduct is expressly prohibited by the Protocols,” the league said. “Again, your conduct potentially compromised not only your safety, but also the safety of others, as well as the league’s ability to ensure that your club’s training camp is conducted in a safe manner.”
McKenzie was reportedly in the Bills’ facility without a mask. Beasley, meanwhile, claims he was wearing a mask in the facility.
