C.J. Wilson plans future return to NFL after two fingers blown off

It’s hard to play American football with just eight fingers, but that’s what C.J. Wilson of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers plans on doing once his recent hand injury has healed. The cornerback recently lost two of his fingers in a fireworks accident on the American Fourth of July holiday. Wilson realizes he won’t be ready to play when the upcoming 2015 season kicks off, but he plans on returning to the NFL at a later date.

Wilson just released a press statement which said he’ll be taking some time off from his football career in the immediate future while he recovers. The statement was released through his agents and it said, “On behalf of C.J. Wilson, he has decided to step away from the NFL at this time to focus on his immediate needs in recovery which are the foundation of his long-term health. When CJ is fully healed and able to return to the game, he will then continue his career at that time.”

Washington Redskins lose trademark appeal

The NFL’s Washington Redskins are still facing a lot of roadblocks concerning the club’s name. There are many people who believe the moniker is disparaging to Native Americans and the franchise is under a lot of pressure to change it. The team took a hit in court last year when a judge ruled that the team’s patent and trademark will no longer be protected. The court documents said the organization could still use the Redskins name, but some of the former legal protections would be lost. The franchise then sued to have the ruling overturned by the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board, but it had no luck as the ruling was recently upheld.

NFL looking for temporary stadium in Los Angeles

There will definitely be no NFL team in the immediate Los Angeles area in the 2015 football season, but it looks like that could change next year. The league has recently begun to look at suitable venues to house a club in Southern California as a temporary home for a temporary home for a Los Angeles-based side. A couple of the grounds being considered are the Rose Bowl and Los Angeles Coliseum.

In the meanwhile, the Oakland Raiders and San Diego Chargers are hoping to join forces on a new open-air $1.7 billion stadium which both teams will play out of as their new home. This ground would be situated in the area of Carson, which already houses the StubHub Center, the home of the Los Angeles Galaxy of Major League Soccer.

NFL to hire first fulltime female official

The NFL will soon announce the hiring of the league’s first ever fulltime female official in Sarah Thomas. She has been participating in the football league’s officiating development program and is expected to be hired for the next on-field opening that comes up. She shouldn’t have to wait too long since several officials retire each year while others are let go as they don’t make the grade. Thomas is expected to be named to the 2015 list of officials in the coming week.

The 41-year-old Thomas hails from Mississippi and has been officiating all different levels of football for close to 20 years now. She made history in 2007 when she became the first female to officiate an NCAA contest. She has previous NFL experience as a line judge in a preseason game in 2013, but is now about to earn a huge promotion. Retired NFL official Gerald Austin is the coordinator of officials for Conference USA and he invited Thomas to an officiating camp.
