Speaking to Pro Football Talk via Charean Williams, Donald said: “Honestly, I probably won’t even put that on, I need air when I’m out there running around and breathing with them long drives and stuff. I feel like, we’re out there; we’re playing up close. There is nothing you can do. If a guy got it and I tackle the guy, then I probably got it because he is going to be sweating and spitting and slobbering all in my face. So, hopefully, these guys are just doing what they need to do. The shields, they say it works, but I don’t think it would, because the way football is played. Like I just said, that’s on guys doing what they need to do the right way outside of this facility, as long as guys do that, we’ll be fine.”
The defensive tackle comments on the types of equipment have stirred comments from other players all around the NFL like Cleveland Browns’ Myles Garrett and Houston Texans’ J.J Watt. Considering they all play in the most taxing positions in the league, the face shields might just do nothing but limit the amount of oxygen for them.
