Posted October 06, 2018 03:01:31 The National Football League is struggling to keep up with a growing number of allergies, and one of the teams that’s had the biggest issue is the San Diego Chargers.
The team has experienced a dramatic spike in reports of allergies in recent months, according to team and league officials, and it’s been particularly bad in the offseason.
The Chargers, who play their games at Qualcomm Stadium in San Diego, have reported more than 40 allergy incidents in the last year alone.
The number of allergy cases reported by the Chargers and the other teams is up significantly over the past two seasons.
In 2016, the Chargers had just one reported allergy case.
In 2017, the team had nine, and in 2018 it had 26.
While the number of incidents reported has declined, allergies are still a problem for some Chargers players and fans.
One Chargers fan, who asked to remain anonymous for fear of reprisal, has complained about a common water allergy on a daily basis, especially during the season.
“It’s something that you hear from coaches, it’s something you see on the field,” the fan said.
“I mean, the water just makes you itch and make you want to put it on your back and pull it out.”
The fan has told the team that he’s not allowed to play until he’s able to find a doctor who can diagnose the water allergy, which is a serious health risk for players.
He said he’s been to multiple doctors, but he has yet to see one who can determine whether the water allergies are caused by a common reaction to an allergen or simply a bad reaction to a particular substance.
It’s not uncommon for a player or coach to have a water allergy.
It’s even more common for someone with an allergy to contact a doctor.
For example, many NFL players with an asthma or allergies to the inhaler, nasal spray or allergy medicine use inhalers.
But the Chargers, in an effort to combat the spread of allergies to players, have implemented a program called “Allergy Day” that encourages fans to be vigilant when it comes to water.
It includes wearing a mask while in the stadium and asking everyone to take a minute to sniff the air before each game, especially around the kickoff of a game.
“The players are the ones that are most at risk because they’re the ones with the greatest exposure to water,” Chargers Vice President of Football Operations Jerry Jones said.
The league also instituted a special program for fans in attendance.
Fans can also ask players to stop using their inhaler or nasal spray for two minutes before each snap.
As part of the program, players are required to take an inhaler test every week.
Jones said players who fail the test will be subject to suspension for two games and fined $1,000.
Players also are subject to an investigation when they fail the water test.
Jones said the Chargers will also make sure players don’t bring their pets, dogs or cats into Qualcomm Stadium.
Other teams that have reported increased incidents of allergies include the Baltimore Ravens and Jacksonville Jaguars.
Jones pointed to the Bengals and Dallas Cowboys as other teams that are suffering from a similar issue.
“I would just say that these are some of the worst cases I’ve seen, and you know, we’ve got to be diligent about it,” Jones said of the Chargers.
They have a great team. “
The players have a lot to do with this.
They have a great team.
They do a lot of things that are very important to us and they’re going to be doing a lot more.”
