Bruce Arians: 'Thursday games aren't fair to players'

Arizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians believes that it is unfair for players to have to play on Thursdays following a Sunday game in the NFL.

Bruce Arians has said that playing on Thursdays is not fair to players in the NFL.

The Arizona Cardinals host the Seattle Seahawks tomorrow, just four days after their 32-20 defeat to the San Francisco 49ers.

The head coach told NFL Radio: "I'm not a fan of Thursday night football. I don't think he's really fair to the players, especially the veteran players.

"We finished up most of our game plan and practice today, which would be a normal players' day off.

"Veteran players, their bodies, this is really, really hard on them. So many times over the course of the last 10 years, I've seen guys that could not play on Thursday that could play on Sunday and that's really hard on a football team."

The Cardinals currently sit bottom in the NFC West with a 3-3 record.
