Jaguars Training Camp: Players Will Be Fined $10,000 For Talking To Media About Injuries

Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Mike Mularkey is putting a clamp down when it comes to talking about injuries to the media. According to Tania Ganguli of the Florida Times-Union, Mularkey had a meeting with the team last night. In that meeting, Mularkey put the rule down that if they speak to the media regarding injuries, they will be fined $10,000.

Anything I know about a guy, anything I know is hurting on him, any comment he makes will play into how they attack a team or a position. I just don't think it's anybody else's business. ... If I feel like it's going to jeopardize us or compromise us, I will not talk about specific injuries.

Obviously a reason that Mularkey would want to limit the amount of injury discussion in the media could potentially help his team out. The Jaguars are looking for any kind of competitive advantage when it comes to the AFC and if this is one way to help them get that advantage, then so be it.
