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

Drew Brees latest to blast NFL Thursday games after Saints suffer multiple injuries New Orleans QB Drew Brees said playing on short rest contributed a lot to the Saints injuries Thursday

And then to have to turn around four days later and to play?...

The Saints (9-4) suffered a slew of injuries on Thursday, including running back Alvin Kamara, who left in the first quarter due to a concussion.

Defensive tackle Tyeler Davison believes the National Football League should also consider if the current format is smart.

Brees becomes the latest in a long line of players who have spoken out against playing the mid-week game. "So you hope that it's addressed [this offseason], you hope that it's talked about, and you hope that something is done about it".

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. "It's not OK. You can quote me on that".

Baldwin was more emphatic several weeks ago.

"To me, it's very simple what they should do - they should remove a preseason game, have three preseason games", Morstead said. Richard Sherman really doesn't like it. Sherman addressed the issue of police brutality in a press conference on September 21. He also said he will help any player that asks. Congratulations, NFL, you did it again. "I feel like it's hard for them to understand what you have to put your body through, and not only that but what the teams have to go through to get ready in that short amount of time".

DeMaurice Smith, the executive director of the NFL Players Association, told the Washington Post months ago that he's had mixed feedback from players.

"It's 100 percent a product of playing on Thursday night".

Bills lineman Richie Incognito: "These Thursday night games - they suck".

If the NFL truly cares about the safety of the players, then it must find a way to address the concern moving forward if it insists on making Thursday Night Football a regular part of the schedule. You've got to let your body recover a little bit. So those dudes are cool.

Brees said he is convinced the injuries are linked to scheduling which requires teams to suit up just four days after playing on a Sunday. "For the players who have coaches who are beating them up before the Thursday night game, they might have another problem".
