Ever had a cotton swab shoved up your nose!? IT SUCKS!
Just ask L.A. Chargers cornerback Casey Hayward — who had some major pre-swab jitters before his COVID test at the Chargers facility … and the footage is great!
NFL players are getting tested everyday during the first 2 weeks of training camp — which opened on July 28.
And, judging by this footage of Hayward captured by HBO’s “Hard Knocks” … there’s just no getting used to it!
Both the L..A Chargers and the L.A. Rams are featured on the docuseries this season — a big change for the show which has traditionally only chronicled one team’s journey into the regular season.
The COVID pandemic will play a major role in the show based on clips released by HBO.
One scene shows how Chargers coaches are no longer having players gather together to “break it down” after a practice session.
Instead, players are instructed to chant, “1, 2, 3 … Chargers!” while socially distancing from each other during drills.
Weird … considering football is a collision sport that requires players to smother each other and they’ll presumably work on tackling and/or close-quarter drills at some point during practices.
But hey, appreciate the effort.
