Al Riveron, senior vice president, in charge of centralized replay on game day, missed Week 1 due to covid-19.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports Riveron is back in the Art McNally Game Day Center for today’s games.

Russell Yurk, vice president of replay, and three assistants were handling replay challenges in Week 1.

We are glad that Riveron has recovered from covid-19 and wish him well as he handles replay challenges today.
