Jets Are Fined $10,000

From Times Wire Services

The New York Jets were fined $10,000 for violating NFL policy on the reporting of injuries, the NFL announced.

Jet starting center Roger Duffy injured his knee in practice on Thursday, Oct. 9, and did not play in last Sunday’s game against Miami.

The Jets did not make proper notification after Duffy was injured, said NFL executive vice president Jeffrey Pash.


NFL rules require clubs to provide a list of all injured players to the NFL office each week on Wednesday and Thursday for distribution to the media. If injuries occur after those reports are filed, the club is obligated to advise the NFL office, the opposing team and the media.

Coach Bill Parcells will personally pay the fine, the Jets said Friday.
