(NBC) – It looks like the 2020 NFL Draft won’t be in Las Vegas due to growing coronavirus concerns.

With the MLB, NHL, MLS and NBA postponing their seasons, anything is possible for the upcoming draft.

According to a recent report from Sam Farmer of the Los Angeles Times, the NFL Draft from April 23-25 in Las Vegas has been canceled and the league is weighing its options moving forward.

While the event still will take place next month, the current plan will be to move forward with a studio setting in which there will be cut-ins from team headquarters of the team making a selection at any given time, according to Farmer.

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, obviously, is not commenting on the situation at this time given everything is still up in the air but the LA Times actually obtained a statement from Goodell that was sent out to league employees over the past week.
