Friday Fire: In Regards to the Deaths of Sean Taylor and Chris Henry, Should the NFL Require Injured Players to Travel With Teams?
This is rarely mentioned when normal happens and despite knowing these two unfortunate deaths could have happened anyway, there is no better time to speak on this issue. Players not playing, particularily in the NFL, are almost estranged from their teams. Most are not in weekly team meetings, obviously aren’t on the practice field and most likely watching the game from their own couches. There are many personalities around the league who are not good locker room fits when not playing but I think this is something that should be looked into now sooner than later.
