The NFL still plans to hold training camps on time beginning in late July, though contingency plans are in place. 

Hours after the league canceled the Hall of Fame game that kicks off the preseason, the 32 team owners on Thursday were updated on a variety of issues, many dealing with working through the coronavirus pandemic.

Most notably, according to NFL general counsel Jeff Pash, the owners were told about plans to fully reopen team facilities for training camp next month. 

The Denver Broncos are slated to open training camp on July 28, although fans being allowed is highly unlikely.

Several protocol guidelines have already been established. Players will have their lockers spaced out at least one empty locker from each other. With 90 players, some Bronco hopefuls may have to dress over in the fieldhouse. There will be scheduled times, and smaller groups assigned to the weight room and cafeteria.
