There's been a strong contingent of NFL players sharing grievances over turf field surfaces over the past couple of years. NFL players are convinced the turf fields put them at higher risk for injuries, and the Carolina Panthers are the perfect example.

Quarterback P.J. Walker suffered a high ankle sprain in Week 10, making him the third Panthers QB to suffer an ankle sprain while playing at Bank of America Stadium, a turf field.

Wide receiver D.J. Moore came forward in the wake of Walker's injury, and revealed he's one of several Panthers players that let owner David Tepper know "their preference is a grass surface."

Tepper converted the Bank of America field to turf prior to the 2021 season.

"To see that happened within eight weeks ... is pretty unique,'' Moore said regarding these injuries.

It will be interesting if Tepper is willing to make a chance back to grass surfaces, especially with a strong contingent of his players calling for change. Baker Mayfield will be reinstated as the starting QB following Walker's ankle injury assuming he can't go in Week 11.
