NFL: Nike suspends NFL player for “inappropriate comments”

Nike suspishes an NFL player who made derogatory remarks about the National Football League’s women’s team in a video posted on social media.

Nike released a statement Monday to ESPN on the matter.

The NFL has suspended the player for one game and the NFLPA will also be making an official statement on the issue, the statement said.

The player in question, former Philadelphia Eagles player and current Washington Redskins defensive end Brandon Scherff, was arrested and charged on Tuesday with criminal trespassing and disorderly conduct.

A court document says Scherff allegedly called female NFL players “f–king stupid” and said he hoped the league would change its policies.

The video has been viewed more than 1.5 million times and has generated nearly 400,000 shares.

The league and the player have not said whether the incident was related to the NFL Players Association’s new campaign to encourage women to stand for the national anthem.

The league has been the subject of numerous public protests during the national spotlight after President Donald Trump criticized the anthem protests and threatened to withhold millions in taxpayer funding.
