Front Office Sports reported that Carter had it out with FS1 bosses over not being included on Fox’s “Thursday Night Football” coverage. Former New England Patriots star Rob Gronkowski and “Fox NFL Sunday” analyst Tony Gonzalez have appeared on Fox’s “TNF” pregame coverage in recent weeks.

Carter joined Fox Sports in 2016 and had hosted “First Things First,” alongside Nick Wright since 2017. The network did not announce who will replace Carter on the show. Chris Canty has been filling in for Carter alongside Wright and Jenna Wolfe over the past week.

Prior to his stint with Fox, Carter appeared on HBO Sports’ “Inside the NFL” and ESPN’s “Sunday NFL Countdown.” Carter was inducted to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2013 and is primarily known for his time with the Minnesota Vikings. He also played for the Philadelphia Eagles and Miami Dolphins
