WASHINGTON (WUSA9) -- In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III says players are "concerned" about how Thursday night football will affect 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."
More than 4,500 former players have filed suit against the NFL, some accusing the league of fraud for its handling of concussions.
WUSA9 will air seven Thursday night football games this season.
