More details have since emerged since The Big Lead reported on Sunday that that Cris Carter had been suspended from his FOX Sports 1 show, First Things First.
Front Office Sports is now reporting that Carter could be out at the network altogether, as he is reportedly unhappy with his role in the network’s NFL coverage.
“The Pro Football Hall of Famer turned co-host of FS1’s First Things First morning show has taken a leave of absence, sources told Front Office Sports.
That may be the temporary arrangement before Carter moves on from Fox, where he’s worked since December 2016.
One high-placed source told Front Office Sports that Carter is miffed at not being included in Fox’s Thursday Night Football pregame coverage this season.”
Carter is reportedly rumored to have had a major blow-up with his bosses.
“Rumors have bubbling since Friday about an alleged blow-up between Carter and his bosses at FS1.
“I was told it was bad,” said one source.”
Carter did not appear on First Things First last Thursday, Friday, nor on Monday morning.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
