The NFL has reportedly canceled the preseason game at the Pro Football Hall of Fame because of the coronavirus pandemic according to ESPN and The Associated Press.
The 2020 induction ceremonies, including the enshrinement, will be postponed.
The game is the first on-field event the league has canceled during the pandemic, according to The Associated Press.
Sources also spoke to The Associated Press on the decision. Because the decision has not yet been publicly confirmed, the source asked to remain anonymous.
Ten men were scheduled to be enshrined in the Canton, Ohio, Hall of Fame on Aug. 8. No date has been set for when any inductions will occur, the people said.
Former NFL Commissioner Paul Tagliabue, NFL Films co-founder Steve Sabol, former New York Giants executive George Young, former coaches Jimmy Johnson and Bill Cowher, and former players Troy Polamalu, Steve Hutchinson, Edgerrin James, Isaac Bruce and Steve Atwater were to be inducted in August.
