Bills GM Doug Whaley acknowledges 'poor use of words'
During a radio interview when asked if receiver Sammy Watkins is injury prone, Whaley said: "This is the game of football. Injuries are part of it. It's a violent game that I personally don't think humans are supposed to play.""Playing football no doubt is very physically, mentally, and emotionally challenging, and that is all part of what makes the game so compelling to play and watch," he said in the statement. "The game has more protection for players now than ever, thanks largely to the safety advancements and numerous rule changes made by our league and promoted to all levels of football. I believe our game continues to have a bright future and I hope that this statement provides clarity as to the intent of my earlier comment."
