NFL commissioner Roger Goodell sent a league-wide memo Thursday allowing coaches to return to team facilities starting Friday.

The league anticipates that the San Francisco 49ers will be the only team unable to return Friday, according to ESPN's Dan Graziano, as facilities can only reopen if allowed by the respective states.

"(San Francisco) is aware and supportive of this plan and has been in communication with its local authorities to obtain all necessary permissions when available," the NFL said.

While the announcement is an important step for clubs to return to a normal offseason environment, players aren't expected to come back until training camp.

Most teams have reopened buildings for a limited amount of personnel after the league closed all facilities in April to combat the COVID-19 pandemic. However, healthy players have yet to return, with only those needing medical treatment cleared to come back.
