One step toward that: drone football.  Fully animatronic players,
controlled by full-body VR rigs.  Actual people driving, reduced risk of
injury (since excess motion would be detected and buffered - possibly
resulting in lack-of-tactile-fidelity, along with the need for a lot of
tactile sensors so players can tell by feel alone when they're gripping the
ball and when it's about to slip from their hands).

Most of the tech you'd need for that, you'd need for robot football too.
In theory it'd be a lot easier to do, and allow for more aggressive and
therefore more spectacular play.  In practice, you'd need a tech-minded
sports promoter to seriously think through how to sell this; it would not
be an easy challenge.
