The NFL Players Association is reportedly going to investigate FedEx Field’s turf conditions, which drew scrutiny during the Redskins’ 20-10 victory over the Giants Thursday.
The Washington Post reported Friday that an NFLPA source said the union “will take a look at the matter,” adding, “That turf has been an issue off and on for some time.”
While social media users roasted the field’s condition during the game, Redskins spokesperson Tony Wyllie termed it “a non-issue.”
“Our field was in good condition last night, although a recent freeze made the Bermuda grass turn brown between the numbers,” Wyllie told the Washington Post Friday.
Miller spoke very emotionally about the outpouring of support he has received since his injury, which he says has helped him accept what happened and begin the recovery process.
“It’s worldwide,” Miller said of the support. “It touches you. Why do I deserve all that?”
Miller still has a long road ahead of him as he recovers, but he already said he can’t wait to get back out on the field and “give a lot of people some hugs.”
Carroll ran all the way to the middle of the field after the second fight, which he said was to “make a statement to our guys so we didn’t finish with any more garbage happening out there.”
Ottawa is coming off a 5-0 loss to San Jose on Dec. 9 and has been shut out in three of its past four losses.
“Frustration would be a word right now in a sense that we can’t seem to find traction in our game and the way we want to play consistently,” said defenseman Dion Phaneuf, according to the Ottawa Citizen.
