NFL players have a tough choice to make
For years NFL players have been using a pain medication called Toradol to help them play through injuries. It looks like they could end up stop using it starting this coming season.
Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reported on Friday that the NFLPA has sent a memo to players around the league, encouraging them not to use Toradol because of the bleeding that it can cause.
The good thing is that not taking Toradol could help the health of NFL players down the road, but on the flip side it could keep a lot more guys from playing week in and week out due to injury.
I would imagine that most players will still take Toradol so they can play due to the fact that they will be scared to miss time and lose their starting job to another player. This will certainly be something to monitor, but we all might be seeing more players on the New York Giants and other teams from around the league miss more games this coming season.
