Same kind of thing happened to me too.
I was playing in online Franchise mode, played like 5 or 6 years and spent a lot of time on it!!!
Then at week 3 it showed I had an injury so I checked to see who it was and then when I went back to the “things to do” list the “Advance Week” option just totally disappeared as well as the option to play that weeks game.
Fix this I’m not gong to start a new Franchise just for this to happen again.
What a waste of money and time!!!
I spoke to ea customer service and it was said to me in the only one with this issue. EA we want our money back if were can't play what wet played for.
