Which NFL stadiums have artificial turf and which ones have real grass? Here's a list

Two days after New York Jets quarterback Aaron Rodgers suffered a season-ending Achilles injury at MetLife Stadium, the NFL Players Association is calling for all stadiums in the league to make the switch to natural grass.

"Moving all stadium fields to high quality natural grass surfaces is the easiest decision the NFL can make," NFLPA executive director Lloyd Howell said in a statement released Wednesday morning. "The players overwhelmingly prefer it and the data is clear that grass is simply safer than artificial turf. It is an issue that has been near the top of the players’ list during my team visits and one I have raised with the NFL."

The newly-installed FieldTurf Core surface at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford is described as "a multilayer, dual-polymer monofilament fiber" artificial surface, and it was put down both inside the stadium and inside the New York Giants' practice field house across the parking lot this offseason.

NFL players and coaches have their thoughts on the matter, some of them voicing their opinions on Tuesday and Wednesday.
