The Baltimore Ravens were fined $20,000 by the NFL for not disclosing an injury to Ed Reed, which the safety mentioned in a radio interview Oct. 17, according to NFL.com.
Ravens said he had been playing with a torn labrum in his shoulder, which he acknowledged had been affecting his play. However, Reed wasn't listed on the team's injury report, violating the NFL's procedures for reporting injury information.
The Washington Redskins and Buffalo Bills received equal fines last week for not following the league's protocol on injury information.
The policy reads: "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. This is especially true of key players and those players whose injuries have been covered extensively by the media."
