DeMaurice Smith, executive director of the NFL Players Association, issued a statement regarding the crackdown on Saturday which focused on the league's position on health care if there is a lockout next season, worker's compensation and disabled veterans.
"The issue of player safety is bigger than just hits on Sunday," Smith said in the statement. "Players understand the difference between aggressive, split-second actions and dangerous play. ...
"While there are a range of punishments available as part of the on-field discipline system, the NFLPA will ensure the NFL strictly adhere to the existing rules and disciplinary process. We will also enforce the return to play guidelines and safety protocols and practices that occur out of the public eye.
"Our mission is to remain aggressive on player safety both on and off the field."
