The New York City Jets announced on Tuesday that they will not require Manning to wear face masks when he takes the field for their home games.
In an email to the team, the Jets said they are “disappointed” in the decision.
The Jets are not the only NFL team to not require players to wear masks when playing in New York, according to The Associated Press.
The Los Angeles Rams have already implemented the policy, which has drawn criticism from players and the media.
“We understand the concerns and frustrations of our fans,” the Rams said in a statement.
“However, we are committed to maintaining a safe environment for all fans.
The safety and well-being of our players and fans is our top priority.”
