After a series of Twitter posts from Rihanna criticizing CBS for dropping her song from last week’s premiere of “Thursday Night Football,” the network has decided to remove the song from its telecasts for the remainder of this season.

CBS issued a statement on Tuesday saying it was “moving in a different direction” with the opening montage for its Thursday night games.

Last week, after the suspension of the Baltimore Ravens star Ray Rice, CBS dropped the celebratory opening for its new package of N.F.L. games in favor of pre-game coverage of the breaking news, along with commentary about domestic violence. Included in the original opening was backing music from a rendition of “Run This Town,” a song by Jay Z, featuring Kanye West and Rihanna.

Two spokesmen confirmed that CBS had decided, in light of Rihanna’s unhappiness over the network’s decision last week, to replace the song with “newly created ‘Thursday Night Football’ theme music.” The music will be created in-house and will be used for the remainder of this season.

The rest of the opening, which includes an appearance by the actor Don Cheadle, will run as planned, CBS said.

CBS’s top sports executive, Sean McManus, said last week that Rihanna’s previous connection to incidents involving domestic violence played some hand in the decision to drop the song last week, though it was not the main reason for the change.

This week, Rihanna sent out posts assailing CBS for withdrawing the song, saying, “now you wanna slide it back this Thursday. NO.” She used a vulgar expression in criticizing the network and called it “sad for penalizing me like this.”
