Russell Wilson Calls Out NFL: My Wife Is Pregnant & There’s No Clear Plan On Player Health & Family Safety
Russell Wilson is concerned about his family’s health, in light of returning to NFL’s upcoming training camp. The 31-year-old Seattle Seahawks player tweeted on July 19th:
I am concerned.
My wife is pregnant.
@NFL Training camp is about to start
And there’s still No Clear Plan on Player Health & Family Safety.
We want to play football but we also want to protect our loved ones.
Russell Wilson’s wife, Ciara, is pregnant with their second child together. The singer has a son from her previous relationship with rapper Future.
Russell isn’t the only NFL player speaking out against the NFL’s lack of preparedness. Myles Garrett, defensive end for the Cleveland Browns, also expressed his concern tweeting:
“if the NFL doesn’t do their part to keep players healthy, there is no football in 2020. It’s that simple. #WeWantToPlay
Buffalo Bills’ player Stefon Diggs also tweeted:
If #AdamSilver can respect the voices and protect his @NBA players why can’t @NFLcommish do the same? Listen to your players. If we want to have a full season it will have to look different with OUR safety as the priority. @NFL make the necessary changes.#WeWantToPlay
