ecause of Covid-19 restrictions, the NFL has limited the number of people allowed on the sideline to as few as possible and is considering expanding the allowed bench area to keep players and coaches farther apart. Among those people no longer allowed are sideline reporters from the TV network.

McDermott spoke to CBS sideline reporter Evan Washburn on the phone as he headed inside, rather than speaking with him in person to minimize contact. He was scheduled to speak to Patriots coach Bill Belichick as well.

This has been the procedure throughout the season around the league, but it was the first time the scene has been caught on TV with McDermott.
