Photo of Bills’ Stefon Diggs at Cowboys Playoff Game Raises Concern

Stefon Diggs

Getty Stefon Diggs #14 of the Buffalo Bills warms up prior to the AFC Wild Card playoff game against the New England Patriots on January 15, 2022.

One day after the Buffalo Bills’ dominant 47-17 win over the New England Patriots in Orchard Park, wide receiver Stefon Diggs traveled to AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, to watch his brother, Dallas Cowboys cornerback Trevon Diggs, in a playoff game against the San Francisco 49ers.

Photos that emerged from Stefon Diggs’ visit to the Cowboys game on Sunday, January 16, caused major concern for Bills fans.

The 28-year-old receiver was seen on national television meeting with fans — without a single person wearing a face mask to help protect against COVID-19 transmission.

Based on Diggs’ tweet before the 2021 NFL season officially started, it seemed the two-time Pro Bowler had no issues getting vaccinated against COVID-19 after the league announced its updated rules and regulations concerning coronavirus. In July 2021, he wrote on Twitter, “accountability … availability.”

In case there was any confusion on what Diggs was referring to in his tweet, his teammate, fellow wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders, quoted Diggs’ tweet while sharing a photo on Instagram of his vaccination card, Bills reporter Bradley Gelber shared.


Bills’ Fans Voiced Concern for Diggs’ Health After Seeing Photos of Him at the Cowboys Game

The Bills are in the midst of one of their most promising playoff runs, and the idea of losing the team’s No. 1 wide receiver before the AFC Divisional rounds next weekend because of a positive COVID-19 test did not sit well with fans.

One fan tweeted after seeing Diggs at AT&T Stadium on Sunday, “They just showed him taking pics with fans no mask on… if he gets Covid I’ll lose my mind,” while another fan jumped straight to the worst-case scenario, “Yup so he’s out next week after catching Covid. Can’t wait.”

“Ooof,” one man tweeted. “I get going to support your brother but you’d think they’d have players lock it down for the home stretch. COVID could still wreck this team’s chances,” while another person commented, “Someone give him a mask, PLEASE!!!!”

AT&T Stadium does not require proof of COVID-19 vaccination or a negative test to attend games, FOX 4 News reported in August. While masks are recommended for people who are unvaccinated, they are not required, according to the stadium’s guidelines.

While the NFL has strict rules in place for players and staff, the league does not impose regulations on fans attending games. Therefore, each team’s stadium has different requirements when it comes to COVID-19.


Who Do the Bills Play Next?

While the Bills’ regular season was a rollercoaster, they got hot exactly when it matters most and haven’t lost a game since December 12.

Diggs, who caught all three receptions from quarterback Josh Allen on Saturday night against the Patriots — including a jaw-dropping 48-yarder down the sidelines in the second half — has been a huge factor in the Bills’ success this season.

Buffalo won’t know who they will be playing against next week until the conclusion of Sunday’s games. If Kansas City wins, the Bills will head to Arrowheads stadium to take on Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs.

If the Pittsburgh Steelers defeat the Chiefs, the Bills will be hosting the Cincinnati Bengals at home at Highmark Stadium.

2 years of mask wearing has no effect. The virus has always been the needle. 2020 I drove by the Queens hospital every day and it was empty. Upon rollout of the jab on Oahu I heard people in my elevator telling that all they knew who got it were having issues. Prior to that not a single case in our building. Get off the propaganda which is blatantly obvious and strengthen your own immune system with proper organic foods, exercise and sun if you can get it. Nobody is dying in the street from this and only the jabbed are dropping with heart attacks and myocarditis. Period.

What an absolutely awful article. Complete waste of time. Nobody cares about masks and nobody cares about Covid anymore. Your liberal ass needs to get bent.

The mask nazi’s will post an anything. Get a life, get out of your rat infested basements and get over it. If the idiot media would tell you to jump over a cliff because of science, you fools would do it
