Cincinnati Bengals veteran running back Joe Mixon is apparently not a fan of the NFL's solution to Monday night’s canceled game against the Buffalo Bills, which was initially suspended after second-year safety Damar Hamlin went into cardiac arrest after collapsing on the field.
The league made the announcement Thursday night, citing several factors, including that the teams who already qualified for the postseason would not have been impacted by the result of the game, but rescheduling it would cause the playoffs to be postponed by a week.
"This has been a very difficult week," NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said in a statement.
"We continue to focus on the recovery of Damar Hamlin and are encouraged by the improvements in his condition as well as the tremendous outpouring of support and care for Damar and his family from across the country. We are also incredibly appreciative of the amazing work of the medical personnel and commend each and every one of them."
While Mixon was among the many players to celebrate the positive update on Hamlin’s health Thursday, he was seemingly annoyed with the NFL’s handling of their Week 17 matchup.
"So we not following the rules no more," Mixon wrote on Twitter with a screenshot from the NFL rule book on its policy for canceled games.
