Drew Brees Lit Into 'Thursday Night Football' After Slew Of Saints Injuries

This Thursday, Alvin Kamara and Senio Kelemete left the game with concussions; A.J. Klein and Kenny Vaccaro left early with groin injuries; Trey Hendrickson left with an ankle injury and Ted Ginn, Jr. left with an unspecified injury late in the game. Last month, Doug Baldwin said the games should be "illegal" after the Seattle Seahawks suffered a series of injuries, including Richard Sherman's torn Achilles.

"Yeah, absolutely", Brees said. They weren't the first players to argue against Thursday Night Football, but they did provide some of the angriest responses to Thursday night games yet. "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".

He's referring to the fact that most NFL games are on Sunday, and "Thursday Night Football" games are only four days later, giving players little time to recover. "And it'll be addressed". Coach Sean Payton hinted at his frustration by throwing an injury question back at the room of reporters. In his postgame press conference, a frustrated Payton asked the media "What do you guys think, why do you think there were so many injuries tonight?" At 9-4, the Saints are looking to fend off division rivals Atlanta and Carolina for a playoff spot in the NFC, with a rash of injuries in the Thursday night loss to the Falcons making that more hard. "That short turnaround, we have to check the analytics, those studies, those stats and see because we had quite a few guys go down today".

"The people who decide whether or not we should do it are NFL owners who probably never played football at this level", Davison said.

"Your body's just not back", Vaccaro said.

North Korea says war is inevitable as allies continue war games
The Foreign Ministry spokesman cautioned North Korea does "not wish for a war but shall not hide from it ". China, North Korea's neighbour and lone major ally, again urged calm and said war was not the answser.

Left tackle Terron Armstead feels the National Football League must take another look at the Thursday night matchups.

ESPN's Mike Triplett detailed the injuries the Saints suffered on Thursday night, and they are extensive.

"Obviously, we have a new CBA coming up in 2021 and I think that's something the players should push for", Morstad said.

"It was just one of those games".

"To me, it's very simple what they should do - they should remove a preseason game, have three preseason games", Morstead said.
