NEW YORK (AP) — The NFL, not surprisingly in the midst of a rise in COVID-19 cases, has looked into other potential sites for next month's Super Bowl.

That's not unusual because the league does so every year.

According to the Associated Press, the league has reached out to AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, as a possible contingency
plan if they cannot play the Super Bowl in Los Angeles.

But with Los Angeles the site for this year's title game, and restrictions increasing for attendance at indoor events, it has become more noteworthy.

Earlier Wednesday, the Grammy Awards were postponed indefinitely.

They were scheduled for Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles on Jan. 31.

Organizers cited health and safety concerns.

The Super Bowl at SoFi Stadium is scheduled for Feb. 13.
