practice in. practicing together again. maybe in real very impress me being you know production oriented we didn't win so it's you know of an era both of those but again thoroughly impressed that they did something that no one's ever seen before in this league. >>he's just keeping it after being placed on the covid watch list for out of the 5 players on the line with clear to play yesterday. the raiders will fly to cleveland ohio next sunday to take on the browns. well we've seen the impact that the virus has had on students returning to school but some colleges universities. we're also dealing with the effects of students who you know have decided to just take the year off brian intent has details. >>18 year-old christina downey who lives just north of atlanta planned to be in college right now she graduated from high school was set to go to college in texas. but the pandemic got in the way and spend that much money to be do online classes. so weak. >>so there is a plan just to
come home and do online and then we thought about it and send. let's take a year. it's going depend. utley, i didn't want to have to pay for school. for it to be on mine, i don't think the education is the same christie, the story is the same as thousands of high school graduates across the country freshman enrollment colleges and universities nationwide is down 16% from last year according to the national student clearinghouse research center overall were you surprised by these numbers we were very surprised by the first by the freshman number so concerned about the freshman is really mixed is is really there are now hundreds of thousands of freshman across the country who didn't show up for college at all this fall compared to last year. >>experts say there could be a long-term impact on schools financially this will definitely be a concern for many colleges and students are of course the source o college and there.
