The injury updating process might be flawed, and some coaches don’t think they ought to have to participate at all.
But one team took it a step further this week, telling the opponent without updating the media.
The Bears are going to be without running back Matt Forte and linebacker Pernell McPhee today, as neither of them traveled to St. Louis.
Ordinarily, a team will report that information to the media, to disseminate it in advance of the game. But the Bears didn’t.
They did, however, tell the Rams, according to Mike Garafolo of FOX Sports.
That at least keeps them in compliance with the competitive balance portion of the equation. But there are plenty of other people who might have liked to know that information, and they were kept in the dark.
And the league office should be working to find out why that happened.
