Mystery of the day:
Why is Cris Carter no longer working for FOX? Nobody seems to know and FOX is giving us the ole’ run around, like Blues Traveler:
Fox Sports statement: "Cris Carter is no longer with Fox Sports. There is no further comment at this time.”

A story at The Big Lead reported that Carter “cleaned out his desk at Fox Sports under supervision of security,” according to their sources. Here’s what else Ryan Glasspiegel wrote:
The Big Lead first reported on Sunday that Carter was suspended from First Things First on FS1 pending a Fox investigation. Michael McCarthy of Front Office Sports followed up with a report that Carter was miffed about not being included on Fox’s Thursday Night Football studio coverage and berated Fox Sports bosses about it.
Since last Thursday, Chris Canty has been filling in for Carter alongside Nick Wright and Jenna Wolfe on the FS1 morning show.
Hmm.. that’s interesting. Tony Gonzalez and other folks have been flown in to do that Thursday night gig instead.
While there have been reports that Carter was miffed about not being a part of Fox’s “Thursday Night Football” studio show, that is not the reason he was let go.
He may have been upset about not having a role on TNF, but sources said the matter at hand is more serious. The exact nature of the disagreement is unknown at this time. Carter could not be immediately reached for comment.
Huh. Wonder what happened?
