More and more NFL players are taking this stance. The grueling work, the injuries, the hard road back from injuries.............all I'm sure play their role.
Arian Foster doesn’t want his children playing football

Arian Foster was back on the field Wednesday practicing with his Texans teammates for the first time since late May.
Initially sidelined by a calf strain during OTAs, the star running back later developed a back issue that kept him out of training camp and the team’s first two preseason games.
Foster, who is unlikely to play in Sunday’s game against the New Orleans Saints at Reliant Stadium, declined to go into details about his back injury when he met with reporters after practice. The fifth-year man out of Tennessee, however, did acknowledge that he doesn’t want his children to experience the pains of playing football and doesn’t intend to let them participate in the game.
“I love the game and everything, but this hurts, man,” Foster said. “It’s a lot of work, man. Let Daddy put in the work so you can go study art or something.”
