Jonah Williams "dinged up"
It sounded like he was waiting to be evaluated when ZT initially released the info...meaning he wasn't looked at yet. Likely nothing serious.

The team employs him, they do not own him. Should your employer release your medical history?

I get the frustration, but there are laws stopping the Bengals from releasing medical info.

Please give me a reason in 2019 to buy season ticket again in 2020!!  Tongue
The guy got injured in camp where they aren't wearing pads or doing physical things. I doubt the team wants to actually put that info out there as it looks bad.

I think the HIPAA thing is being overstated for sports. Teams put out injury info all the time. But, you don't have to do it until the season why do it?

I think Adam Schefter just screwed the pooch about getting any player to ever speak to him again in the NFL. If I were a player or coach and Schefter even so much as asked I played football I'd tell him to buzz off to put it extremely mildly. He'd be on the outside looking in forever. If I were a coach I might even prohibit my players from speaking to the guy or otherwise associating with him in any fashion whatsoever.

Quote:The balance became more complicated this week, when ESPN’s Adam Schefter not only reported that Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul was having a finger amputated but also posted on Twitter an image of the medical record. As noted by Bernie Augustine of the New York Daily Newsmultiple players reacted negatively to the release of a player’s medical records.
This is the absolute last signature change I'll ever make...right up until the next one. The last will be just as soon as someone pays a funeral director on my behalf.
