Dolphins’ Chris Clemons had groin surgery last week

Jacoby Ford, Chris Clemons AP

Dolphins safety Chris Clemons participated in 15 games this season, missing only the Thursday night game against the Bears with a hamstring injury.  After the season ended, however, Clemons underwent surgery to repair a groin injury.

Per a league source, Clemons played with the groin injury for the second half of the season.

Clemons was listed as probable with a groin injury in only three games after the midpoint of the season:  Week 10, Week 12, and Week 16.

Of course, the fact that he played with the injury doesn’t change the fact that the Dolphins didn’t properly disclose it.  We’re told that he had the injury for the entire second half of the season.  Thus, the injury should have appeared each week on the report.

    Here we go again with one of your irrational pet peeves.

    Everyone fudges the injury report. Some teams don’t put people on it who are injured, some teams put people on it that aren’t injured.

    And no one cares, no one except you that is, because everyone knows that the injury report is nothing but a cheat sheet for gamblers.

    Other teams and the league don’t go crazy about people fudging the injury report because they know if they put a spotlight on it, they’ll have to defend why it exists in the first place.

    Let it go, man. Nobody cares.

    Yeah, I mean, it’s not like we did alot of other stuff right this year either…

    I think it is time that the NFL stops making people disclose who is injured. It is really only for betting purposes. Both teams would be at just as much advantage if they did not know who was out/injured for each game.

    I thought the rule was a player only had to be listed on the injury report if they were limited in practice. I mean, ALL these guys play hurt during the year. But if you are a full participant in practice all week, what is there to report, really?

    If you can prove he missed practice time in those other weeks and wasn’t on the injury report, it might be a story.

    The Dolphins are an irrelevant franchise. Who cares what they do?

    John Stossel is smart.

    No wonder his play dropped the second half. This explains it.

    The injury was diagnosed by the Chiefs’ Shaun Smith.
