Football is becoming a more perilous game each and every year.
Even with rules aimed to improve safety, it seems the injuries mount faster and faster each season.
Concussions are the greatest fear these days, but numerous other injuries are just as prevalent.
Former Tennessee Volunteer, and current Houston Texan, Arian Foster said recently that he has no intentions of allowing his kids to play football.
Arian Foster says he doesn’t want his kids to play football: “This hurts, man. Let Daddy put in the work so you can go study art.”

Foster, who’s struggled with injuries this pre-season, shares the sentiment with parents around the country.
No one wants to watch their child go out and get seriously injured playing a game.
At the same time, no one wants to be the one to keep their child from playing a game they love. It’s a tough spot to be in as a parent.
Foster has a view of the game that most of you reading this (as well as I) will never have. To hear him talk about not letting his kids play football, says a lot about where the game is currently, and where Foster sees it going.
It’s a debate raging around the country right now, so tell us: will you let your kids play football?
