Wife Of NFLer Claims Players Let Quarterback Get Injured After He Disagreed With Protests

The National Anthem protests by some NFL players has been a rather hot topic - to say the least - so it shouldn’t be all that surprising to know that the debate has crept into the individual team locker rooms as well. While there’s no way to know for sure what’s said behind closed doors, the wife of one NFL player has made some shocking claims about an incident she says took place.

As AWM shares, Miko Grimes, the wife of Tampa Bay Buccaneers cornerback Brent Grimes, claims that one team allowed its own quarterback get hurt in a row over anthem protests. According to Grimes, members of the Oakland Raiders didn’t take too kindly to star player Derek Carr’s stance on things, and they allowed him to get leveled twice during a recent game as a result.

“A lot of people don’t know, but the reason Derek Carr got injured is because the Raiders offensive line allowed him to get injured. Because he was against them protesting, and they had to fight in the locker room before that Monday night game with the Redskins…Derek Carr is a Bible thumper to the fullest,” she said. “And so he was basically trying to force the players to read the Bible before the game and do all this stuff, and they were like, ‘No, that’s you.’”

Carr was sacked twice during a game against the Denver Broncos on October 1, and Grimes alleges this was because of the incident that took place.

“And so he was so upset about it, when the whole offensive line said they were going to kneel, he was like, ‘No, you’re not kneeling. No. No. This is America. You’re going to stand for the flag.’ And they got in a fight in the locker room, so when they came out to play, they basically had a plan,” she added.

Oakland Raiders cornerback Antonio Hamilton vehemently denied her allegations in a post on social media.

“A lie don’t care who tells it as long as it’s told. People will do and say anything just to get a few mins of fame. Almost every word was false,” he wrote.

He would also take the time to provide some more clarity on things via a statement.

“The part where she said DC is a Bible thumper is true. He is a great man of God who isn’t afraid to express and show his love for Christ… Everything else she said was a lie, that’s the most energy she gets out of me, the rest was a lie…,” the statement read. “Let’s put our energy into spreading peace and putting positive vibes in the air… People we got to do better… If you’re going to put information out at least let it be 100% true.”

So is there anything to see here or not? That’s unclear, but the claims from Grimes have grown legs. That being said, she has never been one to be shy about stirring the pot. It’s unclear how she has any direct insight into personal conversations that took place in the locker room of a team that her husband doesn’t play for.
