Beginning this 2008 football season, the ACC will be the first conference to implement injury reports.  Coaches can now submit levels of injury in the twice-weekly release announcing their players’ injury status.  The list ranges from "out" to "probable" -- but will not address specific injuries. This type of system was adopted from the NFL who lists players as out, doubtful, questionable, and probable.  Both the ACC and its coaches agree it will benefit coaches and spokespersons who will no longer have to answer daily questions about player injuries and their specifics. 

Injury Report Key:

  • Tampa Bay Area Events: ACC FootballProbable—Will most likely play
  • Questionable—Possibility of playing
  • Doubtful—Very bad chance of playing

  • Out—Not playing

For all things 2008 ACC Football Championship turn down

Will the new rule change give coaches some relief?
