Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III says Thursday night football has left some NFL players “concerned” about what that means for their health.
“There are a lot of players out there who feel like there are not enough days in the week for us to be playing on Thursdays,” Griffin tells The Hollywood Reporter. “It’s something the NFL is going to have to address to make sure they’re keeping their players safe while also trying to maximize their revenue.”
The league has been hit with concussion-related lawsuits from former players, while CBS has acquired the rights for eight Thursday night games this season.
Griffin declined to talk about the NFL’s other hot-button issue, the controversy over the Redskins’ name.
The quarterback graces the cover of THR‘s sports issue, which is packed with stars such as Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Reggie Miller, Vin Scully and Terry Crews.
