Drew Brees Says Thursday Night Football Is 'Absolutely' Not Safe

Share

"No player likes putting himself at risk on four days' rest, to come and put their bodies through what they put them through", Brees said. Look at the injury studies.

The main loss for the Saints was running back Alvin Kamara, whose 11 touchdowns are tied for the most in the NFL.

Let's refrain from making any here in the interest of not piling on, but the facts are clear: The players hate Thursday Night Football. Is (playing on Thursday) smart as it pertains guys' health and safety?

When speaking with NY radio host Bill Schulz she said trump tried to kiss her after they shared lunch together in 2005 or 2006. Ms Huddy's claim shares parallels with those made by other women who allege Mr Trump made unwanted advances towards them.

Richard Sherman, Doug Baldwin and Richie Incognito are a few of the other prominent players who have made their voices heard on the matter.

Brees said he hoped the issue of games being played on Thursday nights would be addressed in the close season.

"For the coaches who give their players time off heading into a Thursday game, those players love it because you're not having contact and you're not working hard on that week, and then you play the Thursday night game and then what?"

Southampton are still without defender Cedric Soares who is sidelined with a hamstring injury. Therefore, Per Mertesacker will probably start in the defense with Koscielny and Monreal.

The good news is that Alvin Kamara seems to be fine and will probably be good to go for the next Saints game against the Jets on December 17. Linebacker A.J. Klein, safety Kenny Vaccaro, defensive end Trey Hendrickson and receiver Ted Ginn Jr. also exited with various injuries. "But they've been doing it all season, so I guess we're the last ones to get the middle finger", he was quoted by CBS as saying.

Last week's game between the Dallas Cowboys and the Washington Redskins was the only Thursday night game on the National Football League schedule this season other than the season opener between the Kansas City Chiefs and New England Patriots to involve teams with more than four days of rest. "You hope it's addressed, you hope it's talked about, and you hope that something is done about it".

Brees is the latest in a string of big-name NFL players to criticize the league's Thursday night initiative, which began in earnest in 2006.
