When NFL players get hurt for the rest of the season do they lose pay or still get compensated?
When an NFL player gets hurt during the game and is out for the rest of the season, Do they still get paid?
NFL players are under contract. Whether they get hurt or not, they get paid the same.
If a player was hurt on the first play of the first game, they would get paid for the rest of the season and as long as their contract calls for them to get paid.
NFL contracts include several different ways a player is paid. The "base salary" is their guaranteed money, so if they're hurt during the season they would still receive this amount. Contracts also include "escalators" related to amount of time played and stats. Basically players receive bonuses for being on the field more and playing well. Then there is off season stuff, roster bonuses (if you're still on the team as of March 1 you get a bonus) and work out bonuses (show up to these voluntary practices and you get a bonus). These are really just ways for accountants to spread out payments and allow them to work within a fixed Cap amount. The team can only spend a certain amount per year on salary, but these various payment methods allow them to (legally) cook the books as it were.

Is it offensive to you when NFL players perform an act of worship to their God on the field?NFL kickers often do 'the sign of the cross' before a kick on the field also. Should players leave their worship at home and off the field?
