The NFL will look into whether the Indianapolis Colts violated rules by not disclosing an injury to quarterback Andrew Luck, league spokesman Brian McCarthy said.
Fox Sports’ Jay Glazer reported Sunday morning Luck has been playing with multiple fractured ribs since Week 3, in addition to the injury to Luck’s throwing shoulder that sidelined him for two games earlier this season.
Colts general manager Ryan Grigson issued a statement through the team Sunday afternoon, denying the team has committed a violation. “Our injury reports are accurate,” Grigson’s statement said. “If people have any questions about player injuries, they should refer to our injury reports.”
Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports is reporting that the penalty may be a loss of draft picks and/or a fine.
Remember, Colts GM Greg Grigson is the mancunt that tipped off the officials that the Patriots were "tampering" with footballs during the AFC Championship game. Now, he may get penalized for breaking NFL rules regarding reporting injuries? That is the fucking definition of irony.
If Roger Goodell really cares about the integrity of the game, then he has to go hard after this asshole. If the report is true, it means the Colts cheated and GM Ryan Grigson lied about it by denying it. That absolutely compromises the integrity of the game and is the height of friggin arrogance.
The Colts should face a minimum $1M fine and a loss of two draft picks. If the Patriots got that for an equipment violation, then that should be the starting point for not reporting an injury and lying about it. This is where the rubber meets the road and we find out if Roger Goodell really cares about the integrity of the game or is completely full of shit.
What's sad is, we all know how this is going to end. The Colts are going to say Jay Glazer is a liar and Goodell will take their word for it and not even bother to investigate...because they aren't the Patriots.
This league is so fucked up.
