One safety measure that the NFL is considering to combat the coronavirus is adding extra protection to players’ helmets. Face coverings are proving to be effective in slowing down the transmission of the virus and the sports website Stadium put out a mock-up of what the helmet could potentially look like.

It almost looks like a motorcross helmet that has extended ear flaps, and has a place in the middle to breathe out of. Maybe not this exact model, but prototypes are being developed by Oakley, who are already under contract to make the visors used in the NFL.
