NFL Nation TV wonders if stars should sit in the preseason


A pair of Pro Bowl players may have been lost for the season in the same exhibition game with Green Bay Packers receiver Jordy Nelson and Pittsburgh Steelers center Maurkice Pouncey going down on Sunday.

The Packers have already announced that Nelson will not play in 2015 after tearing an ACL on a non-contact play while the Steelers are holding out hope for Pouncey, who injured an ankle.

It all begs the question -- should star players suit up for relatively meaningless preseason games?

Host Paul Gutierrez (San Francisco 49ers reporter) and co-hosts Coley Harvey (Cincinnati Bengals reporter) and Mike Wells (Indianapolis Colts reporter) will be joined by Kevin Seifert (NFL Insider) to discuss in the quick-hitting 30-minute show, as well as take your questions and comments.

Should the preseason be limited to two games?

If so, would the regular season then be extended to an 18-game campaign?

How are certain teams attacking the preseason and is Adrian Peterson's angle of not playing at all in exhibitions about to become the norm, rather than the exception?

Do fewer football workouts in the offseason have something to do with the injuries?

Who are some of the more notable players to miss a season due to an exhibition injury?
