If Bills wide receiver Isaiah McKenzie didn’t know any better, he might’ve thought he made an unintentional cameo in The Truman Show. McKenzie, who is unvaccinated, shared a strongly worded memo he received from the NFL this morning that essentially said, “Mask up, because we’re watching you. Always”.

“On August 25, 2021, at approximately 2:15 p.m., while walking through the indoor fieldhouse and into the training room, you failed to wear a mask. Then at approximately 4:35 p.m. on August 25, for several minutes, you again failed to wear a mask in the meeting area while gathered near other players after the offensive meeting,” said the league issued memo.
The memo, which appears to have been given to McKenzie in person and via email, later confirmed he is unvaccinated: “For players who are not fully vaccinated against Covid-19, like you, your conduct is expressly prohibited by the protocols.”
Teammate Cole Beasley wasted little time chiming in on the league’s messy protocols, pleading for somebody (presumably the NFL) to “make it make sense.”
Don’t worry they got me too. 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. https://t.co/VGzoy0ljb4

The positive takeaway here is that, if you lose your keys within the team facility, the NFL should have little time tracking them down. Because they’re always watching.
