Sadly, a longtime NFL executive passes away at the age of 48

NFL players may sometimes go to extreme lengths to ensure they can play in games throughout the season.

By continuing to play in the regular season, many sportsmen, including the league's greatest quarterbacks, risk further damage.

In a recent interview with Joe Rogan, Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers acknowledged to using the painkiller Percocet while playing in the past.

Dov Kleiman claimed that Aaron Rodgers admitted to playing games while high on Percocet, which the quarterback later admitted was a bad decision.

"Now for some anecdotes from "nonathletes" If you participate in this collision, gladiator sport,... You most certainly have anything in your system," a supporter writes.

As another fan put it, "I don't know what to tell you if the idea that NFL players are high on painkillers during games is news to you."
