Moving forward, disclaimer regarding injury reports

September 2, 2009

I’ve been cordially informed by both the Lions’ coaching and training staffs that weekly injury reports are a delicate issue, and publishing information regarding these matters needs to be treated as such.

State and federal legislation (and Lions’ team policy) strictly outlines the specificities of disclosing information regarding the medical history of student-athletes—with which I am and always have been more than happy to comply. The players themselves have provided the lone source for the entirety of the context of these reports, adhering to the rules set forth by both parties.

Though in the past I’ve consistently posted accurate and relevant information in the limited weekly reports within the bounds of these guidelines, it’s been brought to my attention that I’m dancing on an ever-so-thin line between providing exclusive information and breaking the law. In the best interests of the team, the players, and myself, I’ll be drastically more vague moving forward.
