This comes in the wake of the 49ers’ temporary move to Arizona./

The San Francisco 49ers might not be the only NFL team uprooted by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Days after the NFC West contender officially relocated to Arizona for at least the next two weeks, both the Los Angeles Chargers and Los Angeles Rams are preparing for their own emergency moves amid increased COVID restrictions in California. That’s according to Yahoo Sports’ Charles Robinson, who reported Friday that the NFL has been in contact with both franchises regarding potential paths forward.

The Chargers and Rams’ discussions with the NFL have included “troubleshooting potential practice and stadium sites outside the state of California,” per Robinson, with both teams “eyeing backup plans that could include the use of another NFL facility in neighboring states.” These talks “began swiftly” after the Niners were abruptly forced to find a new practice and game-day home because of Santa Clara County restrictions.
