The network, whose Sunday NFL pregame show is based Los Angeles, is expected to air Thursday’s show from the Big Apple, with Michael Strahan hosting. He would be joined by Howie Long and Terry Bradshaw. The trio would also continue its duties on the Sunday pregame show.
With Strahan co-hosting Good Morning America Monday thru Friday, he would not have been an option for the pregame show if it remained in L.A.
FOX landed rights to part of the NFL’s Thursday Night Football package, and has been trying to land big names to join the game coverage. While a pursuit of Peyton Manning failed, adding Strahan’s recognizable face and name to the lead-up before games certainly will give the broadcast a familiar feel for fans.

If Sabathia goes on the disabled list, the Yankees options to for a call-up include Domingo German, who impressed during spring training, and Chance Adams, one of the organization’s top pitching prospects.
