FILE - In this June 17, 2014 file photo, Washington Redskins safety Ryan Clark smiles during an NFL football minicamp in Ashburn, Va. Marijuana is casting an ever-thickening haze across NFL locker rooms, and it’s not simply because more players are using it. As attitudes toward marijuana soften, and science slowly teases out marijuana’s possible benefits for concussions and other injuries, the NFL is reaching a critical point in navigating its tenuous relationship with what is being recognized, more and more, as the analgesic of choice for many of its players. Ryan Clark didn’t want to pinpoint the number of current NFL players who smoke pot but said, “I know a lot of guys who don’t regularly smoke marijuana who would use it during the season.”(AP Photo/Nick Wass, File)
