Earlier this week, the Dallas Cowboys placed a handful of players on the reserve/COVID list. The team has been operating virtually since then, which makes sense because owner Jerry Jones isn’t playing around when it comes to the pandemic.
On Tuesday morning, Jones was on 105.3 The Fan to discuss several topics pertaining to this upcoming season. At one point during the interview, Jones shared his stance on the COVID-19 vaccine.
Jones is adamant about getting the COVID-19 vaccine because he believes it’s the selfless thing to do.
“Everyone has a right to make their own decisions regarding their health and their body,” Jones said. “I believe that completely until your decision negatively impacts many others. Then the common good takes over.
“And I’m arm-waving here, but that has everything to do with the way I look at our team, the Cowboys, or the way I looked at our society. We have got to check ‘I’ at the door and go forward with ‘we.’ Your Dallas Cowboys are doing that.”

It’s unclear if Jones has told his players that he wants them to be vaccinated before the start of the season. The Cowboys have a solid vaccination rate, but there’s only one team at 100 percent right now.
Teams around the league are trying their hardest to get their players vaccinated before Week 1 of the regular season arrives.
