More at the link.The NFL confirmed Sunday a streamlined policy for reporting an injured player's game status during the regular season, a move that addresses the rise of gamesmanship among teams that want to limit that information for competitive purposes.
Under the revised policy, approved recently by the NFL competition committee, the "probable" category has been eliminated and the remaining classifications have been redefined.
Two days before kickoff, teams must list injured players as "questionable," "doubtful" or "out" for that game.
"Questionable" players, per the policy, are "uncertain" to play. Previously, the definition was that there was a 50 percent likelihood of playing.
"Doubtful" means the player is "unlikely" to participate in the game, and "out" means he "will not play." The previous definition for "doubtful" was a 75 percent likelihood that he would not play.

It would be funny if he listed every player.
The Devil whispered in the Viking's ear, "There's a storm coming." The Viking replied, "I am the storm." #SKOL2018

Interesting. I don't really see anything too wrong with this.
