Atlanta Falcons receiver Mohamed Sanu is concerned about his mother traveling from Sierra Leone to see him play in the Super Bowl.

Even so, he does not feel like talking about President Donald Trump's executive order banning immigration for seven majority Muslim countries.

A practicing Muslim, Sanu said it was "a very tough situation" and "hard for me to talk about right now," that he prayed the country and world would "unite as one." He is trying to place his focus on football instead. 

Though Sierra Leone is not one of the countries affected by the executive order, Sanu is still concerned about his mother getting to Houston. He said she is supposed to arrive on Wednesday.

Sanu is in his first season with the Falcons after joining them in free agency. He had 59 catches for 653 yards in the regular season and added nine catches and two touchdowns in the playoffs.
