NFL teams cancel practice in response to Blake shooting
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) -- The New York Jets, Indianapolis Colts, Washington Football Team and Green Bay Packers all canceled practices in an apparent response to the shooting of Jacob Blake, a Black man, in Wisconsin.
The Jets provided no immediate details on their decision to not practice Thursday.
The Colts posted a statement saying they would use the day to discuss and work toward making a lasting social impact.
The Washington Football Team was scheduled to practice at FedEx Field.
Blake was shot by police officers, apparently in the back, on Sunday as he leaned into his SUV, three of his children seated inside.
