First-year head coach Mike Mularkey has informed his Jacksonville Jaguars players that he doesn’t want them discussing injuries in public. If players do discuss their injuries outside of the Jaguars facility, it could lead to a hefty, $10,000 dollar fine. Although NFL Players Association representative CB Rasheam Mathis told reporters that players have no issue with the possibility of being fined, the NFLPA has stated they are going to investigate the issue. The Jaguars do have to disclose injuries to the league office for the weekly injury report, but that is all the information that the team wants released. Coach Mularkey told reporters that the Jaguars had submitted their new rule for players to the league office and the idea was approved. Teams are required to teach players the general NFL rulebook in training camp and then teams have the option of adding their own respective rules. “There’s some rules that we apply as an organization, as a staff, as a training room, as an equip...

Though, despite having his own James Bond car, one problem remains...
