injury reports Every pre-season the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and all of the other 31 NFL franchises go through a dance of sorts with each other and the media. And it’s all centered around injuries Womens Justin Evans Jersey , or the lack thereof.Left tackle Donovan Smith hobbled off the practice field recently. Second year safety Justin Evans was carted off. Like, couldn’t walk off under his own power.The reports are minimal. Smith could miss the season opener, but he might not. Evans is...ok? We think. He likely won’t play anymore in the pre-season, right? Or maybe he will. Nobody really knows. Not until right before the game.Why is that? Well, for multiple reasons.First, they don’t have to. Let’s be real for a minute. A lot of these players and coaches don’t talk to the media because they want to, they have to. The NFL mandates it. Marshawn Lynch is partially famous for his upfront disdain of the policies surrounding media interaction.So, anytime a player or coach has a reason not to answer a question, they’re likely going to take it. For example, when coach Koetter was asked about injuries following the practice Smith and Evans both got wounded in, his reply was,“What else? Guys I can’t talk about injuries alright. You can ask me every day but I can’t tell you. You’re just wasting time.”Now, in the immediate sense, he was talking about discussing injuries right after practice.He’s on the practice field, not in the medical room. Could he possibly have some information or updates? Maybe. But it’s more likely he’s been busy ensuring his players and coaching staff have been on task and will get updates on injuries during afternoon meetings.Don’t blame anyone there for at least asking, but there’s a reason Koetter doesn’t know. He was working. The final reason this time of year causes so much heartburn trying to get injury information? Again, they don’t have to, for a second time.According to the NFL’s Personnel (Injury) Report Policy, Regular and post. Not pre. Simple, right?A lot of fun was made about coach Louie Smith saying the Buccaneers were “Tennessee Ready” ahead of their 2015 regular season opener against Marcus Mariota and the Titans.It turned out, they weren’t.However, it doesn’t mean they weren’t preparing for them well ahead of seeing them. And you can bet Sean Payton and the New Orleans Saints are paying attention to how Ryan Fitzpatrick is leading the offense, which running back is doing well, how is the pass rush improving, etc. So, if they’re paying attention to those things then every drop of injury information gets the Saints just a little closer to being prepared for when Tampa Bay invades the bayou to start the 2018 regular season.Why is Koetter being so evasive with his injury answers? Because he can and should. Kenny Stills kneeled in protest during the national anthem Thursday, and said he offered a prayer of thanks that he had a teammate's support.Stills and two other Miami Dolphins renewed their protests before an exhibition game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Womens Peyton Barber Jersey , triggering yet another round of debate about the divisive NFL issue.Receivers Stills and Albert Wilson kneeled behind teammates lined up standing along the sideline. Defensive end Robert Quinn stood and raised his right fist, as he did during the anthem last season with the Los Angeles Rams.Stills said he didn't coordinate with Wilson, who joined the Dolphins this season."It just happened that way," Stills said. "When I'm on a knee, most of the time I'm praying, and thank God for having Albert next to me. Being a part of this protest hasn't been easy. I thought I was going to be by myself out there. Today I had an angel with me with Albert being out there. I'm grateful he sees what's happening, and he wants to do something about it as well."Stills kneeled during the anthem in the 2016-17 seasons and has been vocal discussing social injustice issues that inspired the protests by NFL players.Former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick, a leader of the movement, tweeted support for Stills and Wilson."My brother @kstills continued his protest of systemic oppression tonight by taking a knee," the tweet said. "Albert Wilson joined him in protest. Stay strong brothers!"Kaepernick and his former teammate Eric Reid, another protest leader, remain out of the NFL. Stills said both players were blackballed, and he talks with Kaepernick every week."I appreciate his loyalty and support," Stills said. "I don't see any reason he and Eric Reid shouldn't be in the league."Wilson said he kneeled mindful of the death of an unarmed black motorist who was shot by police in 2016 near his hometown of Fort Pierce, Florida. Two officers were cleared by a grand jury in the case."Getting shot down and being murdered — the biggest thing in my city," Wilson said. "For me to have so much love for my city and not do anything about it, I would be a coward. I'm with it every Sunday."Quinn said it's slander to say he and kneeling players are protesting the flag."As a black man in this world, I've got an obligation to raise awareness," he said. "If no one wants to live in unity, that's why we're in the situation we're in."The league and the players' union have yet to announce a policy for this season regarding demonstrations during the anthem after the league initially ordered everyone to stand on the sideline when "The Star-Spangled Banner" is played, or remain in the locker room. The Dolphins issued a statement before training camp saying all options regarding the team's policy remain open."The NFL has been engaged in constructive discussions with the NFL Players Association regarding the anthem and issues of equality and social justice that are of concern to many Americans," league spokesman Brian McCarthy said in an email. "While those discussions continue, the NFL has agreed to delay implementing or enforcing any club work rules that could result in players being disciplined for their conduct during the performance of the anthem."Meanwhile, there has been no change in the NFL's policy regarding the national anthem. The anthem will continue to be played before every game, and all player and non-player personnel on the field at that time are expected to stand during the presentation of the flag and performance of the anthem. Personnel who do not wish to do so can choose to remain in the locker room."We remain committed to working with the players to identify solutions and to continue making progress on important social issues affecting our communities."There were no apparent demonstrations by the Buccaneers.
