Football fans will notice a slightly different look when they tune into Fox Sports' NFL pregame coverage today.
The familiar faces seen each week on "Fox NFL Kickoff" and "Fox NFL Sunday" will not appear on set at Fox's studios in Los Angeles due to health and safety concerns, Fox Sports announced Saturday.
Chris Myers will host both shows, with analysts Reggie Bush and Charles Woodson alongside. The regular cast from "Fox NFL Sunday" — Curt Menefee, Terry Bradshaw, Michael Strahan and Jay Glazer — will appear remotely.
In a statement, Fox Sports said the decision was made "(i)n accordance with CDC guidance, Los Angeles County Department of Public Health safety guidelines — and out of an abundance of caution for our team."

Likewise, the "Fox NFL Kickoff" crew of Charissa Thompson, Tony Gonzalez, Mike Vick, Dave Wannstedt and Colin Cowherd will not be in the studio as well.
"We look forward to the return of both casts to their regular posts soon," Fox Sports' statement said.
Fox made a similar move earlier this season on its college football pregame show — "Big Noon Kickoff" — when it was later revealed that analyst Urban Meyer tested positive for coronavirus.
