During an interview with Dan Patrick, Roethlisberger was asked about the protocols and he immediately pulled out the NFL administered tracer.

Roethlisberger described the tracer as something the players are not allowed to take it off and could receive fines if caught by the league without it.

Last season, the NFL was in a bubble format and changed the way the players had to live.

Big Ben touched on that saying that without a bubble, players need to go back to living their lives and being fully vaccinated is a way of getting back to normal.

Sure, there is a tracer and the league is holding the players accountable, but it’s a step in the right direction.

As for protocols for non-vaccinated players, it is vastly different from those of vaccinated players.

Roethlisberger said that he is not aware of who is or isn’t vaccinated on the Steelers; He knows that he is fully vaccinated and he is living his life.
