Ravens Fined $20,000 For Not Listing Ed Reed On Injury Report -
Last week, it was the Washington Redskins and Buffalo Bills who received a financial slap on the wrist from the NFL for not disclosing injury information. This week, it’s the Baltimore Ravens who were hit. The league fined the Ravens $20,000 for not including Ed Reed’s shoulder injury on their recent reports. It was the same amount the Redskins and Bills were fined. Washington failed to update the media on Robert Griffin III’s concussion after saying only he was “shaken up,” while the Bills didn’t include Mario Williams’ wrist issue, which he claimed was affecting his play. Reed recently revealed in a radio interview he’s playing with a torn labrum. He didn’t miss any practice or playing time, but that doesn’t matter. “All players with significant or noteworthy injuries must be listed on the report, even if the player takes all the reps in practice, and even if the team is certain that he will play in the upcoming game,” the NFL injury-reporting policy reads. “This is especially true of key players and those players whose injuries have been covered extensively by the media.” Ravens head coach John Harbaugh defended the team’s handling of Reed in his Monday press conference, adding that he did not expect a fine.
