Default Redskins Face Hefty Fine for Not Reporting Injury During Game

Shanaham either slow learner.......or entering Alzheimers.......

Quote:
The NFL’s injury-reporting rules apply not only before a given game but also during it. If the Redskins didn’t know that, they soon will.

Jay Glazer of FOX Sports reports that the Redskins are facing a “hefty fine” for their failure to disclose that quarterback Robert Griffin III suffered a concussion during last Sunday’s loss to the Falcons.

The Redskins instead described Griffin as “shaken up” during the game, with no updates provided until after the game, when the team said Griffin has a “mild concussion” (i.e., a concussion suffered by anyone but you or your child).

If anyone knows the rules in this regard, it’s Redskins coach Mike Shanahan. Nine years ago, Shanahan was fined for reporting during a game that Broncos quarterback Jake Plummer had left with a concussion when, in reality, Plummer had a separated shoulder. Shanahan said at the time that he lied in order to conceal the true nature of the injury from the Chargers, in the event the team’s other quarterback (Steve Beuerlein) had gotten injured, forcing Plummer back into the game. (And, yes, in 2003 a guy could re-enter a game with a concussion.)

“To share with somebody that Jake has a separated shoulder and could not throw and our quarterback goes down, we have a good chance to lose the football game,” Shanahan said at the time.

I don't know if anyone remembers when the NFL fined the New York Jets, their general manager and their former head coach (Magnini) $125,000 for hiding that quarterback Brett Favre played with a torn biceps tendon late in the 2008 season--an injury that came to light only after Favre told reporters about it.
