Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Bruce Arians said on Thursday that his team is 100 percent fully vaccinated against COVID-19.

That number includes players, coaches and team staff members:

The announcement from Arians makes the Bucs the second team in the NFL that has stated they are completely vaccinated against COVID-19. On Aug. 16, the Atlanta Falcons became the first.

Naturally the Bucs being added to the list holds some natural weight.

They’re the defending Super Bowl champions and… like him or love him… are a team led by future Hall of Fame quarterback Tom Brady.

On Aug. 25, a report stated that only four teams in the NFL were said to have less than 89 percent of their players vaccinated against COVID-19.

League-wide overall, that same report said 92.7 percent of players in the NFL were vaccinated. With the NFL having a week off over Labor Day weekend before the start of the regular season, there could certainly be a chance that figure increases as well.
